DEVIOUS ONES: Djarum Summers: 7”

This record offers a quick blast of great punk/power pop energy in these two songs, with a light sprinkling of garage punk scuzz over the top. Recorded by Detroit’s top garage punk hitmaker Jim Diamond, he—along with the band—gives these sickeningly catchy power punk songs some teeth. The result is perfect, tuneful, and catchy-as-fuck songs that I can’t get out of my head. Seriously, I found the chorus to the song “Court Clothes” stuck in my head hours after listening to it. Good stuff. –Mark Twistworthy (Rust On The Blade, [email protected])
