CONTROL FREAKS, THE: She’s the Bomb: LP

Catchy snottiness doesn’t seem to be the phenomenon it once was, but it’s still one of my favorite things. The Control Freaks’ recent LP will blare nicely out the car window while steadying your bat for a swing at a mailbox. The band features overdriven guitars and catchy choruses. “She’s the Bomb” has a catchy repeat. “I Hate Your Face” has the sing-a-long negativity you want. This is an album to add to the canon of Loli And The Chones and Bobbyteens. Beer and bubblegum. Awesome. –Billups Allen (Slovenly)
