Like the legendary Sonics before them, this Seattle band personifies high-energy rock 'n' roll, and their 3rd album is an even rawer, more feral take on their primal garage-punk sound.  The band delivers one concise, explosive, no-frills blast of rock 'n'  roll after another for one of this year's most exciting rock albums, local or otherwise. -

Funhouse Comp Thing
Welcome to the Funhouse Comp Thing, a collection of 31 bands who have played Seattle's last remaining (mostly) full time punk rock bar, plus one band who has NOT played the Funhouse because they're too young  & their parents won't let them play a stinky dive bar. The Funhouse opened on Halloween night 2003 & has  hosted hundreds of great local & touring bands, plus a few really awful ones.  Most of the bands on the comp are from the Pacific NW, but there are a few exceptions - The Armitage Shanks are from the UK & The Sermon from California.
