Cement Shoes - A Love Story Of Drugs & Rock & Roll & Drugs 7"

IMHO, at this hour Cement Shoes of Rich­mond, Vir­gi­nia are the cur­rent kings of the gara­ge­core micro genre, cou­pling a mas­sive amount of bor­der­line-sleazy rock'n'roll with an unde­nia­bly hard­core kind of energy you will find in rela­tively few other groups - Cülo or their quasi-suc­ces­sors Taran­tüla, Man Eaters come to mind as a some­what more hard­core-lea­ning com­pa­ri­son… just maybe. Or kinda like aus­tra­lian sleaze-garage rockers Gol­den Peli­cans having a hard­core epi­phany. On their newest 7" via the ever reli­able bri­tish qua­lity out­let Drun­ken Sailor Records we get more of just that, while the clo­sing track Going Off The Grid , a rather strai­ght­for­ward, clas­sic garage tune, might or might not indi­cate a future move away from hard­core speeds. But wha­te­ver they're gonna do next, they're an exci­ting act to keep both eyes on.
