Welfare Mothers Long Brown Hair 7" (Welfare Mothers) Two cool grooves here: "Long Brown Hair" captures that 70s power pop sound back when it still rocked a bit and was devoid of sacless Beatle-booted future lawyers and garbage like The Knack. It's that semi-solid ground between Twinkeyz glam-punk and punkish rock like the Only Ones, though those names are bit to heavy to drop on these, uhhh, moms. "Bloodsucker" is a deceptive bastard. Posing as some meat & potatoes Cap't 9's puggishness, the guitars freak in that Modern Lovers' "I am a little too tightass to totally wig out but I'll give it my all" kinda freak, which, in this case, is fine & d. as it sounds like a real freak, not some peg in the hole pose. Cherry debut with punch production by Tim Kerr. —SS - Z-Gun


When this record started and the singer came, in I thought they were from England, but apparently they're from Texas. This sounds good, like a beefed-up, sped-up WRECKLESS ERIC or something. It rocks in all the right directions and the two songs are short and sweet—no unnecessary wanking. I'm not sure if it would sound as good as a full-length, but I have an incredibly short attention span when it comes to garage-y or rockin' stuff, and this is great. I know a lot of folks are going to cream themselves over this. (AD) - Maximum Rock and Roll

Bio

A Houston based band composed of members from other bands such as Sugar Shack/The Monocles/The Mirrors, started playing in early 2007. With already a serious following this band puts together some of the most awe-inspiring garage rock out at the moment! They play with such passion and force that it leaves the audience in a shallow grave being resurrected like Jesus Christ wanting more! Think about it. GUITARS, BASS, DRUMS what else can you ask for.
