JACK WIDOWS, THE: Straitjacket Candidate: CD

Punk with a dash of metal? Metal spray painted with punk? It really does not matter, since this record will ram it down your throat either way. “Heart of Stone” and “Blind Leading the Blind” will definitely bring down the house at your next raging kegger. Need a starting point? Dead Boys meet Fastway in a dark alley. Buy a copy of this unless you want to be under the blade. These guys mean business. –Sean Koepenick (Self-released, thejackwidowsfacebook.com)
