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

Political garage rock, kind of like a low-rent Randy with a much better name. I thought I remembered these guys sounding more like the New Bomb Turks, but it’s been a couple of years since I listened to Blitzhacker. The artwork looks really cool, and this is a pretty decent record on its own merits, but it fails to singe off my eyebrows or give me a wedgie. Too bad.
