VEE DEE: Public Mental Health System: CD

Another band who takes from the sound of the Stooges and Radio Birdman. Proto-punk with some psych influences. This has its moments, but, on the whole, it gets pretty indulgent and goes on way too long for its own good. Nor do they do anything to separate themselves from all the other bands playing with the same sound.
