RIYL: Jay Reatard, Ex-Cult

Label: Six Tonnes De Chair Records

Picture the Battle of the Alamo. ¬†The Texans are surrounded by a sea of Mexican soldiers, and surrendering ain’t an¬†option. ¬†You hold the line and you don’t stop fighting, and when you run out of bullets, you start swinging your bayonet at anything that moves. ¬†That’s the spirit of San Antonio’s finest garage punk rockers The¬†Bolos, only they’re entrenched in a sea of mediocrity and khakis. ¬†Their weapons? The guitars on their backs and the razor sharp vocal chords. ¬†Let the battle commence.

Fans of Jay Reatard’s many incarnations, Ty Segall’s reverb-drenched screams and Ex-Cult’s DIY punk attack will immediately get what The Bolos are serving up here. ¬†Their mantra can be summed up in side B’s Baby Cakes. ¬†“Live my life and die young, that’s what I’m gonna do. ¬†I know what I wanna be, and it ain’t you.” ¬†It’s loud, it’s mean¬†and you can dance to it. ¬†Davy Crockett and the boys would be proud.
