POISON BOYS: Poppin’ Eyes and Flashing Feet: 7”

Mar 25, 2020

Some rockin’ punk from this Chicago band who presumably took their name from the TKO Records 7” single from The Riffs way back when. A-side tune has an actual Raw Power-era Stooges feel to it complete with piano and Williamson style guitar lead. Not a lot of newer bands can pull that off and it is damn well done here. On the flip there is some serious Berlin Brats crashing into the Joneses vibes and, again, shockingly well done. This band has the look but they seem to spend even more time on writing great songs. I am very interested in hearing the recently released LP to hear more. Glam punk deluxe! –Mike Frame (White Zoo, whitezoorecords.bandcamp.com)
