LURKERS, THE: Sex Crazy: CD

Not to be confused with Arturo Bassick’s long-running version of the band, this is a lineup featuring most of the band’s original members. The songs are more or less what you’d expect of the Lurkers—fairly straightforward Ramonesy punk approach with little, if any, frills and matching lyrics. The production sounds a bit ’80s, which gives the tunes a little bit of drag, but they’re fun and sometimes reminiscent of more recent Cock Sparrer with a different singer. –Jimmy Alvarado (Damaged Goods)
