SONNY VINCENT AND THE BAD REACTIONS: “Replica” b/w “Stare Down, Jokers and Clowns”: 7”

Mar 07, 2013

Sonny Vincent, formerly of the late ‘70s New York City power pop/punk band The Testors, is back with a new outfit, featuring members of the Carbonas and Beat Beat Beat as his backup band. There is no evidence of The Testors power pop sound here, but instead snarling punk’n’roll, just as you would come to expect coming from ex-Carbonas members. Part Dead Boys-ish ‘70s punk grit and part Oblivians primeval garage rock blasts, this record surely will not disappoint anyone who likes their rock’n’roll noisy, raw, and dirty.
