The Amps


The Amps Wall of Flowers / Suicide Note 7″

Are the AMPS one of the missing links between the ’60s and the ’80s? Perhaps. “Flowers is ’60s-style garage rock with overlong guitar leads and anti-censorship lyrics. But buzzsaw guitars, a gradually accelerating tempo, and one of those goofy axe solos that only untutored musicians can produce make the flip a stronger and more modern song. Pretty cool record.
