LEECHES, THE: On the Line: CD

Sounds like a dead ringer for Kill by Remote Control-era Toxic Reasons in spots; in other patches, it sounds like rock-and-rolly DOA, with occasional piano banging and even an organ (I think it’s a pancreas). The band is Italian singing in English, which gives it a bit of an occasional off-kilter lilt, but ya gotta do what ya gotta do. I’ve spent twenty-seven worse minutes. BEST SONG: “Like It Happened Before,” or maybe even “Feral Child.” BEST SONG TITLE: “Apes Approved” FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: Their guitar player’s name is “Mexicano.” ­–Rev.
