GHETTO WAYS – st [2004]

Ghetto Ways1

 

Garage punk band from Brooklyn, NY, influenced by The Sonics, Stooges, MC5, New York Dolls, delivers frantic soulful rock’n’roll in the vein of The Gories, Oblivians, BellRays or The Dirtbombs. This is their debut slab. Taste the Ghetto Luv, Dig !!!

”For the dirty boys in the parking lot! This is no new sympathy records girlie cover music, this is pure ghetto trash! Wrecked rock ‘n’ roll that will win your cheap scenester soul in no time.”

”More mean rhythm, backbeat and style than a whole motorcycle gang, it’s been described as a kind of “DIRTBOMBS gone wild“ or “beer soaked inspired australian rock blasts inflected with dirty Detroit soul.“

“The three-piece half woman/half devil falls over the fourth dimension, like an English band from the 70s messing around with the Blues Explosion and MC5.” —ROLLING STONE (FRANCE)

“CRAZY! Most-wild, mighty-swingin’ fuxx-guit-driven 3-piece blastin’ out a Crime-meets-Oblivians scree!” —Tim Warren, CRYPT RECORDS (USA)
