Genuine Spurious Records
This is kick-ass guitar rock in the style of the New York Dolls, Stooges, and Mott the Hoople. Killer hooks, big crunchy power chords, a ballad or two, all sewn together with tasty pentatonic leads. The loose vibe, anthemic lyrics, coy sense of humor, and giant dose of genuine enthusiasm ala early Replacements make Bouncing Balls a very enjoyable listen. I find myself reaching for this the way I used to go for a cigarette. I wonder if there’s a Bouncing Balls Patch? Genuine Spurious Records, P.O. Box 803664, Chicago, IL, 60680.
