GORILLA: Historia Dela Musica Rock: CS

Talk about an impossible band to Google. Either that lame band with a “Z” where an “S” should be comes up or you get actual gorillas. Score one for obscure punk. Gorilla are a current four piece from Japan who have released one 7” and a recent seven-song cassette that is a scorcher for fans of Flaming Groovies, The Registrators later stuff, or Big Star. Way-solid harmonies and a ratchety, dry guitar sound drive the songs late into the night. –Billups Allen (Self-released)
