The Turn-Ups Urban Blight LP

This is a pretty cool garage punk album. The TURN-UPS often serve as BILLY SYNTH’s back-up band, but here they’re (mostly) on their own, and the results are just fine and dandy. Essentially, they specialize in the sort of raunchy guitar-heavy jams that always make “nice” neighbors wince and cover their ears as they pass the basement practice room. And they’ve got great taste in ’60s cover tunes, too—the CHOCOLATE WATCHBAND’s “Meditation.” Alright!
