Bands like The Loose Hounds are what I got into rock’n’roll for in the first place.

This record is rat-fanged garage scuzz from Perth, inspired (I’m assuming) by The Scientists and The Cramps and anchored by the blistering Street Bleedin’ Man, which has to be the most Australian song title of all time.


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.
