Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2010-01-24
Four guys from Berkeley High School making 70’s style punk and energetic, sometimes new wave-y rock. Good production and lots of catchy parts. Not far from like minded locals The Time Flys, plus: The Dead Boys, a few rn'r-based Killed By Death comp bands, Stooges and even the punkier side of Hanoi Rocks.

((((1))))) (FCC at the end “Fuck” sung once) Wailing guitars galore, sneaky Stooges-like piano, shouted choruses and sleazy lyrics.
((((2))))) Dirty & loose punky rawk with more catchy choruses.
(((((3))))) Very Ron Asheton-styled guitar & nasty vocal delivery.
((((4)))) Fast & punky, fulla attitude.
((((5)))) Cool, very traditional 70’s “weirdo new wave” (y’know before they knew what punk was) rock with apocalyptic lyrics re: 2012.
(((((6))))) Big & bold riff with a lot of low-end then super-sleazy Stooges/Dead Boys/Hanoi Rocks vocal-style. Great sudden break in fast punk then back again.
((((7)))) Recycled Ramones riff/structure but still quite good for what it is.
((((8)))) Hard rockin’, screamin’ junked out rawk.
((((9)))) Blues-y, garage-y, 60’s & mid 70’s styled new wavey rock with a “Killed By Death” comp. flair.
((((10)))) Swaggery as fukk, “ah-ah”/”(doot-doot-doot) “hey!.....hey!” backing chorus. A lot going on here. Ends with more Ron Asheton guitar worship.
((((11)))) Strummin’ & drummin’ hard, dirty young dude lyrics, garage-punk rawness with piano. Ends like a mofo’ing Kansas song.
