Veni Vidi Vicious
Burning Heart Records
The second full-length album by these young Swedes, Veni Vidi Vicious was released last year; we're finally getting it at the gullbuy.
A buzzy mix of sixties garage trash and seventies punk with lashings of new wave.
Some tracks, like A Get Together to Tear It Apart, are more melodic, bringing to mind The Boys or the Undertones, while others are nastier and brutal with more of a Stoogian plod.
But, hell, they're all good -- right down to the sweet cover of Jerry Butler's Find Another Girl.
