Slow Against the Glass 12″

Noted for their frantic live act, this 12″ captures that energy as well as their variety. Using funk, rock, and other influences, galvanized by punk energy and attack, they pound out six pop/punk/garage rippers. Great singing, too.

The Fuzztones Bad News Travels Fast / Brand New Man 7″

The FUZZTONES dig their claws into some mean neo-’60s punk with this single. “Bad News Travels Fast” delivers its good with nasty guitar riffs and Rudi Protrudi’s “lead snarl,” though the screaming lead break on the B-side turns out to be the musical high-point of the record. Primitive, raw, and raunchy.
