VON ZIPPERS, THE: The Crime Is Now!: CD

Lo-fi garage sounds from Estrus? Whoudda thunk? I’d heard of the Von Zippers before, but never actually listened to these boys from the great white north. Political themes but pulled off in a pretty rockin’ manner, which started me thinking: has there ever been a political garage band? I thought about it on and off for a few days, couldn’t come up with anything, and then asked Todd if he knew of any. We sat around the office for a while, but neither of us could come up with any. Not my favorite Estrus release lately, but I’ll definitively hold on to it and let it grow on me more. I’m pretty sure it will.
