The Throbs Proud to Be Loud LP

At first, I thought this trashy Canadian group was trying to mine the same area as REDD KROSS, but after a few listens it became pretty obvious that they play a lot better than the McDonald brothers. And as they have some pretty cool hooks, too, I’d have to recommend this to folks who dig both the DESCENDENTS and STOOGES.

The Throbs Proud to Be Loud LP

This is your basic rock’n’roll punk a la ’76. Okay guitar-strong garage punk that rocks okay and only occasionally gets embarrassing. Reminds me of the RAMONES or HEARTBREAKERS. It’s the lyrics, though, that are really embarrassing—definitely “sweetheart” stuff.
