George Thorogood once said “Rock ‘n’ roll never sleeps it just passes out“. Taking that quote to heart, Chicago’s POISON BOYS new LP ‘Out of My Head‘ is definitely the soundtrack for some blackout nights.
There’s no suggestion of rocket science here, just three-minute shots of reckless and ramshackle rock and roll that embraces the Hollywood Brats’ trash, Heartbreakers’ swagger and Dead Boys-era street punk.
Production-wise, you know nothing here has been fixed on the computer, it’s all guitar saturated, unbridled rock & roll with a solid groove. Blown out and loose, Poison Boys sound like a seedy dive bar house band. And that’s a compliment.
