STEREO CREEPS: Suck: LP

Seattle-based rock band that would have fit right into that early ’90s scene that mixed the punk rock’n’roll of bands like Rocket From The Crypt and Murder City Devils with the grungier stuff like Mudhoney and Nirvana. Suck is a solid record with hooks and enough twists and turns to maintain interest, although a few songs do drag, necessitating a “let’s move it along” needle pickup and re-drop. –Chad Williams (Deepskull, stereocreeps.bandcamp.com)
