TOILET BOYS: The Early Years: CD

Snotty, shrill, loose, lo-fi and definitely New York, this retrospective covers the band’s ‘96-‘97 releases, live performances, and a novel cover of everyone’s glam favorite, “Talk to Dirty to Me.” The Toilet Boys demonstrate the sound that dominated the late ‘90s punk underbelly with scores and scores of fantastic bands like the Registrators, the Beaters, the Stitches, and the Stiletto Boys. Visually, it’s Dr. Frank N. Furter fronting the Strokes. Sonically well orchestrated but thank you, I’m full.
