SONNY VINCENT AND ROCKET FROM THE CRYPT: Vintage Piss: LP

Some of my favorite movies growing up were the Universal monster crossover flicks like Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man and House of Dracula. How could you not love Frankenstein’s monster and the Wolf Man duking it out in a dilapidated castle? Vintage Piss is similarly a match made in heaven—or possibly concocted by the seductive forces of hell. The merging of Sonny Vincent’s irrepressible swagger and John “Speedo” Reis’s blistering down-picked guitar chords is a guaranteed pleasure lobotomy. The LP is comprised of songs written and recorded in a flurry over a decade ago. Given the recent reunion of Rocket From The Crypt and the vampire-like immortality of Sonny Vincent, this record is right on time. Tunes like “Sharp Knife” and “Vintage Piss” are memorable contributions to the catalogs of both of these luminaries, ensuring that this an LP not just for diehard RFTC and Sonny Vincent fans, but for all lovers of attitude-drunk rock’n’roll punk.
