The city of Oakland is known for a lot of things; raunchy football fans, Mac Dre, and epic fist fights on the A.C. Transit bus to just name a few. But killer, underground garage-rock power-trios? Well guess what, it’s happening and it’s going down on this record. Equal parts heavy guitar riffs and trippy jam session, these three dudes know how to lay down the kind of goods stoners, hessians, and burnouts alike can hangout and headbang to. It’s a throwback of sorts to bands like MC5 and the Stooges, but definitely something with a modern enough feel that it can stand on its own. A nice addition to the Bay’s diverse music scene, it’s good to know there’s some hard rockers representing on the other side of the Bridge.
