The Cheetahs - The Cheetahs

Full Throttle Baby - Rock N’ Roll Brawl

I like a band that sounds like they should be in a cage. If there wasn’t a stage to destroy I wouldn’t let these dudes anywhere near the general public. They sound like their blood is green and their teeth are just jagged chunks of rusty metal, and this record is the greatest thing to come outta Paris since… I dunno, soft cheese. (710)

Speeder - Speeder

You never know if anybody is on the level or goofing or what these days. But I am telling you straight that Speeder – who sound like every band that was on Ebony Records in the mid 80s – have a song on here called Hot N’ Thirsty that goes: ‘Win or lose, we’re SOFTWAREmark” gingersoftwareuiphraseguid=“63b0cd67-b397-4ce9-8933-67f153969671” id=“d8e6a7c2-5414-4e1a-aa12-fbf4cfe83eb9”>gonna booze and cruise.’ And if that doesn’t thrill you, then I give up.

Came from the sky like a 747. Classic Rock’s least-reputable byline-grabber since 2003. Several decades deep into the music industry. Got fired from an early incarnation of Anal C**t after one show. 30 years later, got fired from the New York Times after one week. Likes rock and hates everything else. Still believes in Zodiac Mindwarp and the Love Reaction, against all better judgment.
