TIGHT NIGHT: Volume: CD

This one is quite simple. Born and bred in Chicago, with some Californian help thrown in, Tight Night hits hard and swiftly gets me on board. Twin guitars screech, wail, and lay down some thick, rocking riffs whilst assault and battery is the name of the game for the rhythm section, creating just enough of a gap for some larynx-destroying vocals. Does it matter that the band includes members of The Bomb, Airstream Futures, The Missing 23rd, and Stalag 13? It shouldn’t but it gives an idea of the pedigree of those members. This records kicks ass and rocks like a good ‘un, which is all you really need to know. –Rich Cocksedge (Little Rocket, littlerocketrecords.co.uk)
