The Quakes
"Live By the Sword" 
(Paul Roman/Orrex)

Characteristic of Paul Roman's adroit songcraft, forbidding tension lurks in ripped flashes, its sinister eyes slitted. But more often, buoyant, head-aloft optimism speed-marches on inexorable mission. Also characteristically, the Quakes throw out some of the brawniest and most insistent rockabilly on offer. Making it all the more arrestingly piquant is natural fellowship of psycho, punk, and new wave manners. I see the gauging arrow has spun off of the Cool Meter.

Recommended "Silent Type," "Under the Radar," "Fuck You"
