Blame it on the Roofies
The Roofies skate the thin line between funny and offensive, usually making great big lazy loops in the offensive side. Vocalist Jibz Cameron has a great psycho girlfriend voice, and plenty of attitude to deliver it hot and steaming into your ears. The band provides a pretty adaptable mix of punk, surf, faux-lounge and what have you to complement Cameron’s raw uncensored delivery. Songs like “Assorcism” and “Bitch” are pretty self-explanatory raging rants. “Frankie the Shoe Fucker” gives us the classic line “Big mean men don’t like come in their shoes.” “Blame It On The Roofies” is a take-off on “Blame it on the Bossanova.” This is funny and crude with no brakes on — if you’re easilty offended, skip it.
