i'm in trouble with another man . . .

The new Strange Boys album on In the Red is fucking fantastic and has been in constant rotation for the last week. It's got everything you love about 60's garage rock: jangle guitars, fuzz when there needs to be, tight drums that lean more towards feeling than technical precision, lackadaisically disaffected vocals (as if Dylan kicked it with the Kinks instead of the Band) and so on. This stuff could easily be snuck onto a Pebbles or Nuggets comp and most would not be wise to the fact that it was made some 40 years after the OG shit.

Here's one of my favorites from the album:
Heard You Wanna Beat Me Up

and here's a vid of the boys in action:
