SWIFTUMZ: “Willy” b/w “Can We Get Together?”: 7”

Jun 13, 2014

Figured this was gonna be some art damaged shit, but you know how it goes, books and covers and all that. What we have is a solo project by SF local Chris McVicker, although I think it could be a functioning band now. Tremendous power pop like the bastard sons of the Real Kids or local faves Cocktails, straddling the line perfectly between sugary pop and tough punk. The production is top notch and the guitars shimmer like some of the U.K.’s C86 bands or even the Wedding Present. More fool me for not hearing them before; definitely won’t miss other releases.
