Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2018-11-20 
Straight rock and roll – no rocks, no salt, no lime, just a straight shot. The late 70’s power punk pop and early 80’s greats come to mind, e.g. Buzzcocks, Ramones on crank instead of glue, The Joneses, Mommy’s Little Monster era Social D., using boogie type walking (running in this case) basslines, blues box guitar melodies. Also big nods to All songs drip with raw rock and roll attitude and insolence but aren’t dirty and distorted garage messes, subscribe more to a more traditional tight playing in your face ethic. Guitar bass male vocs and drums to make Bill Stevenson/Chuck Biscuits proud. A ton of tracks, all under 2 minutes or thereabouts. Many tracks just sorta have the same feel and tone so no super detailed track descriptions found below. Killer stuff, play any unless noted. A ton of songs (37!) amazingly most FCC clean. See also the compilation CD in the stacks the re-release “somebody’s gonna get their head kicked in” for more of this boogying driving punk.
