BADASS MOTHER FUZZERS: Heartbreaker: CD

Power trio from Toulouse, France! Looks like they have already ventured to the East Coast for some shows earlier this year, so the commitment is there. I’m hearing fuzzed-out garage rock in the early Saints and Nomads wheelhouse. Not a bad place to start. A minor quibble would be that a couple song titles are “borrowed” from the Ramones and (almost) the Stooges. The songs are energetic and rock for the most part. They have the soiled map in hand; let’s see if they find the treasure. –Sean Koepenick (Pitshark, [email protected])
