IT’S ALIVES, THE: Self-titled: CS

The band identifies as B-movie punk. The picture on the front looks like something awful is about to happen, but the music is in the Ramones-meets-The Queers domain. There isn’t a song over two minutes inside and isn’t that what the people want? “Drinkin in My Lincoln” and “Glory Hole” are my favorites and, yes, they are about exactly what you think they are! Well played and worth seeking out. Hope these dudes break out to a wider audience. –Sean Koepenick (Self-released, cramholezine.com)
