Live at the Longhorn Hypstrz
CD Review by Mike D'Ariano
"Hey don't forget to get drunk out there, throw up, get busted, get
sent to detox it's rock n roll . . . "
this is what would happen if you took the Ramones and The Commitments
and smashed them together into one band . . . cool. It's the ultimate
punk rock bar band, playing two-minute, loud, fast, rockin' versions of
tunes you know like Wilson Pickett's "In The Midnight Hour,"
James Brown's "Papa's Got a Brand New Bag," Otis Redding's "Shake,"
and Sam and Dave's "Hold On I'm Coming." There's also some you
might not know like "Riot On Sunset Strip" and "Silverspoonpunkthunk."
The cool thing is they've got such a solid sound, that if you don't know
the songs, you'd have no idea which ones are covers and which aren't
if any aren't that is see, I don't know. This is what all bar bands
should aspire to be . . . excellent.
Wish my friend's bar band sounded like: "All or Nothing," "Little Girl," "Hey Joe," "Jenny Take A Ride," "Come See Me."
