ELECTRIC PEACE: Self-titled: CD + DVD

Electric Peace were an L.A.-based garage/psych/punk/rock band (mix ‘n’ match whichever way ye like and you’ll be on the right path) who released a number of singles, EPs, and LPs 1982-’89. Collected here are a number of tracks culled from assorted releases that showcase what the band did best—plunder the best bits from punk, the Cramps, and the Paisley Underground and make it all rock. “Kill for Your Love” is still a devastating bit of garage-fuzz and it’s in good company with much of the rest that’s collected here. You also get a DVD with a very ‘80s looking video for the song “Big Man.” Nice visiting with these cats again. –Jimmy Alvarado (Big K, [email protected])
