Call It Punk, Surfpunk or Garagepunk, They Kick Ass…..Meet, Gymshorts

gynshorts3

Some serious punk sensibilities going on here. For what it’s worth, they remind me of X , and X is one of 20 bands in my top 10 Bands of all-time. And to pull that off you know the band behind the voice has to be just as strong , Gymshorts does that and more. So, if your out there thinking todays’ rock ‘n’ roll is lacking the punch of the good old days, turn this up and let me know if you still think that after your 3rd listen…
This Q & A comes to us from our friends at King Pizza Records.
