YOU AM I: Convicts: CD

Aussie four-piece comes roaring back with this incredible release. Think of a frothy stew that includes The ‘Mats, Johnny Thunders, even a dash of The Saints. The first two tracks—”Thank God I’ve Hit The Bottom,” and “It Ain’t Funny How We Don’t Talk”—are worth the price alone. But from there it only gets better. “By My Own Hand” and “I’m a Mess” are also in the red. If these guys play your town you should be there before the club opens. I’m fucking serious!
