GINO AND THE GOONS: She Was Crushed: 7” EP

Yet another 45 by these kids, who are apparently the current band du jour amongst the trash punk cognoscenti. The production this time ’round is a wee bit more polished, all things being relative, which gives the monster slabs of punk rockin’ they kick down with here a sorta Controllers-meet-DMZ-meets-Ramones sheen. Another fuggin’ stunner here. –Jimmy Alvarado (Slovenly, slovenly.com)
