Eating batteries, pissing gasoline

The Slats come on like The Grifters crossed with Mitch Mitchell-era Guided By Voices, all tangled up in distorted vocals and big guitars. Like GBV, they're from the Midwest (Minnesota and Iowa,) and they play with the abandon of a McLusky, but with the sincerity of an Art Brut.

While I'm lazily tossing out a lot of band names, might as well get these one's in: The Fall, Pavement, John Spencer Blues Explosion.

How can Boom Patrol sound like all these bands? You listen and tell me.

Album: The Slats - Boom Patrol
