TIGER TOUCH: “Hawthorne Boogie” b/w “Berlin City”: 7”

Straight up punk’n’roll out of Portland, but you wouldn’t be wrong thinking they came straight out of early ’70s Detroit. MC5 worship with some of that Turbonegro swagger. If you dug the early 2000s sounds of the Hellacopters and all those greasers, you’ll dig this lot. –Tim Brooks (Tyrannical Volts, no address listed)
