TROUBLE BOYS: My Own Way: 7”

Trouble Boys are a trio of swinging power chord slingers from Austin. “My Own Way” is a mid-tempo rocker with classically distorted guitars framing a catchy chorus. “Rock N Roll Is Dead” is a Rubinoos cover with the line “rock n roll is dead/ and we don’t care” delivered in blasé-er than life fashion by the Trouble Boys. Great cover. I always thought The Rubinoos deserve better than their dollar-bin status. You can still find Rubinoos LPs cheap if you’re interested. And keep an eye out for Trouble Boys as well. Both songs on this single are excellent: snotty and overdriven. Wicked. –Billups Allen (Sweetheart, sweetheart studios/facebook)
