Scanlan lays down the ever-so-lively rhythm and riffs, giving each track its own personality (here some surf-rock twang, there some buzzy bass or squealing feedback). Bierman’s vocals range from a raspy whisper to a broken scream. He scats wildly on one track ("Bullet") and whines, growls, whoops and howls his way through the rest, making sure his hard-working bandmate doesn’t grab all the glory. Somebody buy this guy a bag of Ricola!
Ten original songs (plus a Todd Rundgren cover, "Out of Control") follow the punk-rock anthem stylebook fast tempo, catchy refrain, "life sucks" lyrics but there’s a certain rock-star swagger and style that is all ‘70s raw power.
