Oooh! One of their best records; Recorded in 1988,1989, and 1991-92.
Features the earliest singles by the Monomen: Burning Bush, The Witch,
Away, No Time, then later works: Hang Up, Daylight, I Don't Care,
Watch Outside, Catalina, Right Now, No Reasons To Complain,
Boss Hoss, Lie Detector, Over The Edge. Lots of nods to 60's garage
music with covers like The Witch, Hang Up, No Reasons To Complain...
A solid record! The Northwest's best garage punk band, simply, because
they were able to put out their records, and many many others' records
on this fine label called Estrus Records. Bands like The Mortals,
early releases of The Makers, Girl Trouble, The Volcanos, The Gasoline,
Man Or Astroman, Dead Moon, Sugar Shack, Monkeywrench,
And oh so many bands are on that label : The Quadrajets,
The Fireballs Of Freedom, The Von Zippers, The Soledad Brothers,
The Immortal Lee County Killers, who am I forgetting? I'm sorry If
I forgot your band, but I do have every single record on this label.
That should make up for my lousy review here...I hope.
I can't possibly do Estrus Records a decent enough tribute here!
