For fans of the Stooges and MC5...
These recordings are not the best quality and were only really demos in the first place. However, the power of the band is undeniable. Ron Asheton riffs hard like a man who's just spent the last few years in the Stooges. Dennis Thompson is on fine form and the other guys aren't bad either.
What lets it down for me is the singing. There are 2 different singers, and they sing in a way that sort of predates a lot of 70's/80's rawk music - ie a bit cheesy. The worst song on the album 'I Can't Quit Ya' is the prime example - the lyrics even something about 'when you shake your tits'!?!
However, the riffs are fantastic - 'Lucky Strike' being a prime example and should appeal to Stooges/MC5 fans.
