U-Boats Street Tough LP

They look punk, but sound more rock. There is some early punk-sounding stuff, but about half the material is sort of pre-punk or else has a lot of wanking guitar solos. Those songs that are “punk” are pretty good (and powerful), and those that aren’t are pretty bad. Note: not too enlightened (as in sexist).

U-Boats Dead and Desperate EP

More garage punk from Florida’s U-BOATS, though this time around the production is better. The lyrics are a little goofy, but the music is very appealing in a real basic sense and the grungy guitar adds a nice touch. I like it.
