TOMMY GUN & THE BULLETTS: Something New: 7”

Nov 28, 2006

Side A is the title track and blasts off into a hybrid of Ramones worship shot gunned through acts like the Mr. T Experience, Riverdales etc., etc., spit out by a singer who is a cross between Joe Strummer and Mike Ness. On paper it sounds like it’s a formula for failure but on record it comes across right nice; there’s no crisp, sheen production to piss me off and a decent amount of fuzz. Side B offers up two more tracks of the same with “Put Me Back.” Here, they inject some street punk leanings here with Peter & The Test Tube Babies coming to mind first. “Stand Up” finishes off the 7” in all its snotty glory.
