NO BLUES: Self-titled: 7”

Sep 17, 2018

I love power pop and garage rock but when bands try a little too hard and end up veering towards overproduced cock-rock purgatory, well that’s when they lose me. No Blues are the missing link when it comes to punks who are okay with guitar solos but would rather not sit through a forty-five minute set. Brevity is the name of the game here where the guitar solos are side by side with the vocals because there’s no time to spare when you’re working with three songs in three minutes. Round up the Marvelous Darlings, cut their songs into thirds, turn all the noisy levels way up, and do it all in one take. I present to you: No Blues. –Juan Espinosa (SPHC,
