LAST KILLERS, THE: Wolf Inside!: LP

There’s nothing terribly original about these Italians (sorry, was that redundant?) —even their Odd Rod/Big Daddy Roth-style album cover evokes more nostalgia for similar covers from the ‘90s than the original source material from the ‘60s— other than the amazing lightning swiftness with which they mix, scramble, and detour their bountiful gunny sack of garage rock’n’roll clichés. One second it’s like, “Yeah, it sounds like the Nomads, I heard this all a million times before,” five seconds later it’s, “Yeah, it sounds like the Devil Dogs, I heard this all a million times before,” five seconds after that it’s, “Yeah, it sounds like Les Sexareenos, I heard this all a million times before,” five seconds after that it’s, “Yeah, it sounds like Billy Preston, I—wait, what now?” These guys whiz back and forth between source material swipes so adeptly and innovatively that their lack of invention is essentially a non-factor. Get the stick out of your ass and go have some fun. BEST SONG: “Tally Ho.” Who the hell are The Clean? BEST SONG TITLE: “Tally Ho.” Who the hell are The Clean? FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: Among the miscellaneous samples between tracks: The count-in to 20/20’s “Yellow Pills.” ­–Rev. Nørb (Go Down, godownrecords.com)
