Album Review
Reviewed 2004-02-24
Holy FCC! Yeeeehaaa. Dirty rock/punk EP from NYC. This thing explodes with energy. At the same time, manages to deliver a tune as well. The basic guitar-bass-drum sound of the album was recorded (according to liner notes) in 3 days in a steamy NYC summer. And it sounds just like that: like the angry, the un-hip (in a good way) Strokes evil brothers. Great guitar, great dirty-rock sound, great everything. Forget the Strokes and Walkmen: this is the NYC band for you. Every song is good, but I just love 2, 4, 5.

1. Punk high-tempo track, male lead vocal, female repeating the “ghetto world” title in the chorus. 2. Slow mid tempo with loud chorus.
3. Mostly chorus repeated, mid-high tempo.
4. Mid-high tempo song, female vocals added. Great chorus…
5. Slower tempo and beautiful. Frenzied Last minute! (follows after a brief break in the song). Dirty blues-rock.
6. (short track, 1:24) Repeated chanting of the track’s title over high-tempo drumming and wailing guitars.
