Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2014-05-20 
At first glance this sounds like a Ramones worship band, but further listening reveals twisted elements of Suicide, Beelzebub Youth, Phantom Limbs, Black Flag’s sickest chording. The majority of tracks are cemented in simple beats/guitars, slowly phrased mildly melodic vocals a la The Ramones. All songs are short, punky to the point. As the CD progresses the darker weirder elements rise to the surface and things begin to sound like Suicide, or horror-punk. Irreverent lyrics and themes become more apparent and you realize that this band has some real depth. Have I said “great shit” yet? Track by track below only has descriptions if the songs veer from the Ramones’y flavor. FCCs only on last track (which sounds like something ex-DJ Brick would’ve recorded in his most dense drug addled blur ever).

1) (1:57) 2) (1:26) 3) (1:16) 4) (1:17) 5) (1:01) faster 6) (1:10) 7) (1:11) 8) (1:52)
9) (2:23) the CD takes a turn here for the weird, this one is live (?)
10) (2:05) driving with treated vocs about mind control and (egad) “chem. Trails”
11) (2:14) spacey spooky, “liars”
12) (1:47) drving synthy
13) (1:20) electrobeat, Suicide
14) (1:31) ramonesy punk
15) (1:45)
16) (1:20) blitzkrieg bop Ramones
17) (2:21) nice guitar tone, harmonies
18) (2:19) fuzz bass, different feel altogether
19) (1:46) electropunk – “terrorist attack!” play after EAS test
20) (2:07) spooky Halloween feel, blood, witches, cats screeching
21) (1:48) a stoner rock swagger, shifts back and forth 2/4 punk fast
