Doc and the Pods Touch the Unclean Thing EP

Surf, ‘60s pop, psyche, all rear their ugly heads here. It’s OK, inoffensive stuff but nothing to do a double-take over. If you’re gonna go back to the past for inspiration at least re-emerge with some idea of what decade we so live in. These guys coulda done for BRENDA LEE’s “Sweet Nothings” what THE SAINTS did for CONNIE FRANCIS’ “Lipstick on Your Collar.”

Doc and the Pods Sometimes EP

Rockabillyish rock’n’roll on this 4-song EP, occasionally sinking its teeth in, but not really blasting like it could. This is best seen on their cover of the FLAMIN’ GROOVIES’ “Teenage Head,” which just doesn’t have the bite of the original.
