LISTEN TO: CHEAP FREAKS

by

Cheap Freaks are a group of Irish shrimps dead set on beating out the best of the rest of the world’s garage rock revivalists. New album “Bury Them All” combines everything you love about the original Nuggets compilation into one album that flies all over the world of retro garage rock and pop while remaining definitely a product of the modern world, with the lo-fi production values shared by modern and old school garage rock alike. You want the primitive R&B/Soul side of the sound? They hand you spazz-out rockers like “Can’t Fool Me” or album opener “Naked In The Rain” that you can’t help but freak out to, and then they cut you some slack with poppier gems like “I’m Coming Home” , or even surfy rockers like “Nowhere To Go.” This album features both sides of last year’s “Cruel World/Asahara’s Nightmare” 7”, which showcases both sides of the band’s sound, with “Cruel World” sounding like some long-forgotten gem from 1966, while the B side’s spacey-but-urgent insistence stands alongside some of the best of a recent explosion of that kinda sound. All in all, these shrimps do a little bit of everything you’ve ever loved about garage rock, and they do it well.
