FADEAWAYS, THE: “Sick and Tired” b/w “Long Gone (The Customs)”: 7”

Mar 20, 2018

Raucous, snotty punk’n’roll from Japan, The Fadeaways delivers two scorching songs. “Sick and Tired” has bassist/singer Toyozo tearing up his vocal cords from shouting “hey, hey, hey” before busting into the iconic riff from The Kinks’ “You Really Got Me.” Side B, a cover of The Customs’ “Long Gone,” amplifies the original’s attitude and climaxes with an ear-gasmic guitar solo. Although less than five minutes total, this 7” packs more punch than most records by the recent onslaught of trendy “garage” rock bands. Get into it. Never get over it. –Sean Arenas (Secret Mission, secretmissionrecords.com)
