This is an album of solid garage rock played faster, louder and harder than you'd ever have thought possible. Each and every track - with the exception of the closer - whistles past in a top-speed, high-octane flurry. The music is a churning soup of guitar, keyboard and distorted vocals peppered with crisp, crunchy drum croutons. Delicious.
Some might baulk at the record's brevity - you get change back from 20 minutes - but the quality should not be doubted. There is an enhanced section for those who quibble about value for money, but the album proper is so addictive that back-to-back listens become almost inevitable.
The short sharp shock tactics make picking out a highlight almost futile, but tracks such as 'Extinguish Me' and 'Thee Alarm' set out the Coachwhips manifesto with admirable gusto as they stomp, shimmy and shake into your ears. This is a must-have item for rock 'n' rollers, punks or anyone who needs a little something to blow away the cobwebs.
This album is eighteen minutes of adrenaline fulled garage rock and it is brilliant. From the first ear shattering blast of You Gonna Get It, to the final 40 second track Goodnite, Goodbye, I just can't help but sing/scream along to this. The sound is rough, raw and enormous considering only guitars, drums and keyboard were used, and the vocals were allegedly recorded using a microphone taken out of a telephone. If you want something a little different to make you day go off with a bang this is it. Finally don't let the fact its short put you off, there is also a twenty minute live concert video hidden on the CD, and anyway when you get to the end you just just need to press play again.
