GINO AND THE GOONS - Do The Get Around LP
- Label: Drunken Sailor
- Catalog Number: Drunken Sailor 114
- Availability: In Stock
It's budget, it's punk and it rocks. Gino and the Goooooooons are back.
Led by Gino Bambino, the Goons play rowdy punk rock that holds up it’s
pint to the Ramones, Chuck Berry, Willie Nelson, Nervous Eaters, and
Motorhead. It sounds like being in the middle of a really tense house
party. Ten songs to dance, drink, fight and breakdown to.
With records on Slovenly, Total Punk, Red Lounge etc, Drunken Sailor is proud to release their 4th (5th??!!) long player.
"Another lo-fi garage-punk maverick, you say? Sure thing! In fact, throw
away yr Ty Segall records, smash yr Oblivians 45s into dust and sand
down the grooves on yr Gories LPs – you ain’t gonna need ‘em any more.
OK, yes, you could also stick ‘em on eBay, sell to the highest bidder
and live out the rest of yr days in the lap of luxury (sorta), but c’mon
now, that really wouldn’t be in keeping with the spirit of beer-soaked,
fuzz-fuelled mayhem. Much better to trash ‘em and live drunkenly in
squalor. Who’s with me?
Point is, Gino And The Goons are here to claim their crown as the new
kings of trash. Led by the primal howl of Gino Bambino – it’s not just a
clever name – the Florida band drop their fourth album on us with scant
regard for subtlety, maturity or basically
anything that isn’t a rowdy, hip-shaking groove or a gnarly guitar
sound. Do The Get Around features ten barnstormers composed entirely of
snot, snarl and serious sass. Opener ‘Hard Way’ introduces the band in
the best way possible – a riff lifted straight from the raucous end of
Nuggets and Pebbles, a gravel-throated sense of swagger and a guitar
crunch that’ll make you gasp in wonder at the heroic dumbness of it all.
They’ve got plenty of other tricks up their sleeve. ‘Do The Get Around’
sees ‘em messing with toe-tappingly abrasive soloing, ‘I’m Your Man’
throws stink bombs at The Beach Boys’ ‘Surfin’ USA’ before sealing it in
an unventilated room, and ‘Monkey Love’ takes an uncomplicated
sentiment and crunches it underfoot with Stooges-styled sludge. Does
this sound like the sort of thing you’d be interested in? Of fkn course
it does, unless you’re dead. The best soundtrack to out letting all the
air from yr boss’ tyres, and then some."
