The Original Sins


The Original Sins Big Soul LP

Moving on from their previous barn-burner of a single, “Just Fourteen,” these guys have still kept the raw energy that compared them with rough material by the LYRES, the NOMADS, and early garage groups like the SEEDS and COUNT FIVE. There are some slower tunes but I’ve a feeling it’s just to break up the album. In fact, the way the NOMADS have been lately they could stand to cover material like the SINS’ “Possession.” A keeper.

The Original Sins Just 14 / Sugar Sugar 7″

Basically, this sounds like the STOOGES trying to do a cover of a JESUS AND MARY CHAIN song they just can’t get a handle on, so they make up for it by laying out a full-out aggressive noisefest ending. Truly inspiring.
