The Konks – Review

June 15, 2005

Three guys. Two guitars, two drums. Singing drummer. And a harmonica. Don’t forget that, it matters. Like a bubblegum version of The Cheater Slicks (no insult).

April 18, 2005

Take mid-quick tempoed garage rocker as a template, and get a two-guitar four-piece to sneer their way through slangy all-gal snot bombs.

Stiv Bators – Disconnected – Review

February 14, 2005

Reissue of Stiv Bators’ debut solo album from 1980. Disconnected is a power-pop album. That may seem strange if you only know Dead Boys’ Young Loud and Snotty.

January 1, 2000

Pebbles – Vol. 12 The World – Review

January 1, 2000

Eighty tracks from national and international acts that even flew under Lenny Kaye’s Nuggets radar, but Greg Shaw thought worthy of preserving for posterity.
