American Rock ‘N’ Roll (Devil Doll)
by Craig Regala
Hey, who misses Tight Bro’s From Way Back When? This sits its drunk ass right between that and, oh, say The Candy Snatchers fast rocker punk. Subtract points for the MC5 cover (we don’t need no more of ’em, esp since The Hellacopters did the same one [“American Ruse”]), add points for the Crime cover “I Knew This Nurse.” I’m sure they’ll do A-OK if they do a track for the New Bomb Turks tribute, working title: Puns are the Death of Wit. No songs as good as “Crazy Train.” Then again, are there ever?
