RATCHETS, THE: Gotta Be Cool: 7”

Sep 17, 2018

This picture-flexi is a promo single for a forthcoming full-length effort. I have no larger frame of reference for the Ratchets’ stylings, but this is a poppy rock’n’roll song that reminds me vaguely of mid-era Replacements sans production value. It’s a pretty good song, but it lacks teeth, so it fell short for me. Note, however, that I cannot claim that to be true of all The Ratchets’ efforts. –The Lord Kveldulfr (Pirates Press)
