Neurotic Swingers – What’s Your Definition of Underground? (Shark Attack / Lollipop / Myrmecoleo Records)
These guys are French, but don’t hold that against them. The guitars on this album are pure Bollocks-era Steve Jones. The singer’s got a great, crunchy voice that Julian Casablancas would give up drinking to have. The first song, “Dead Language,” is so full of punk rock clichés you’ll want to hate it, but it’s so fucking catchy you won’t be able to. Sadly, they don’t let you hear that one on their website, but they offer Real Audio versions of three other songs. Too bad this cd loses its steam after the first song, because even though the whole thing is only 19 minutes long, by the time it’s done you’ve already had more than enough.
