SONNY VINCENT: Totally Fucked: 7”

Nov 13, 2013

Smokin’ slab of rock efficiency. In two terrifically thick, big-hole sides, Sonny Vincent crams in three energetic garage gems. By “garage,” in this instance, I’m talking about a bunch of dudes bashing out hooky, fast songs with rudiments and an absence of bells and whistles, and none of the willfully lo-fi recording that follows the genre around—everything is audible and well-recorded in the mix. “Robot Radio” cribs hardcore’s oompa urgency, and “Come for You” is the most melodic of the batch by dint of soaring choral vocals. Wouldn’t be out of place on a Humpers/Stooges bill.
