ERIC SAYS: ALBUM OF THE YEAR!
Austin's long running "bath band" GOLDEN BOYS
featuring Nay Nay, or Nene! Also MATT H. And Wes Coleman, too! Brian! He's here! It's ridiculous!
What a band! Released on Gerard Cosloy's 12XU Records. 5th album!
a NY journalist some years ago suggested an unkempt Minneapolis band
--- can't remember their name, the Replaceables? The Lunchables? ---
was "the CCR / MC5 hybrid we've all been waiting for".
It was an interesting statement, but with hindsight, it's pretty
confusing. I've heard Elliot Easton's work with CCR, and while
technically a-ok, I'm not sure it's really a seminal influence, either.
Did I mention I'm having some longterm memory loss issues?
Anyhow, back to the matter at hand. The long-awaited 5th album by
The Golden Boys (Austin, TX) and the first since 2009's Mercury Music
Prize-winning 'Electric Wolfman' is their greatest to date and perhaps
the first of their full-lengths to accurately transfer the
multi-dimensional insanity of their live shows to a home/car/jogging
format. Skillfully documented by engineer Mike Vasquez (whose hands are
all over The Flesh Lights' recent 'Muscle Pop'), 'Dirty Fingernails'
is the rock'n'roll album for persons who long ago gave up on that sort
of thing (or conversely, for the few of you that still give a shit --
take your pick)
