Raymen From the Trashcan to the Ballroom 2xLP

A pretty energetic release that ranges from CRAMPS-type trash to punkability to Robert Gordon/Jack Scott deep-throated ballads to classic punk. All songs are crazed in some way, be it by voice or instrument distortion, speed-crazed pacing, or just enthusiastic x 10 playing. Boss.

Raymen Going Down to Death Valley LP

Here is a fascination with the CRAMPS and early American pop and blues. In any case, there are lots of covers that are rockin’ and dirty. “Haunted House” really rips, as does most of the rest of the record.
