SLUG Mag First Album Review 11/03/2003
URL: View Actual Article
The International Playboys
First Album
Motron Records
The motor-city Detroit sound is alive and well on this kick ass disc by a band who blends perfect punk with soulful rock n’ roll that The Candy Snatchers, The Chargers Street Gan, and the New Bomb Turks have perfected. Like a bad B-Movie, their music is charged with hysterical antics and low budget energy. First Album is a skull-fracturing heap of primitive rock n’ roll comparable to James Brown on crack fronting a hyperactive band raised on Chuck Berry and The Ramones. Highlights include vocally frenzied “No Good” and the funk-induced “Talkin’ Trash,” which will surely get the butt dancin’ and the party jumpin’ without sounding wussy or cheesy. Solid rock n’ roll with a punk rock backbone is what will be pounding out of the stereo for those adventurous music lovers who crave a fix for their revival rock addiction.
