BW PLAYLIST/ KHSU, 90.5/ SAT., 5 FEB. 2011

This charging young U.K. garage rock outfit, led by bassist/vocalist, Mark Whittaker, blaze the path carved out by Billy Childish (especially The Milkshakes and The Mummies), The Monks and Mersey Beat. The quartet's new release, Psychotic Beat!, is an impressive collection on Dirty Water Records - going a cut above than the current ocean of garage acts, due to their strong songwriting and sincere dead-on energy.
