paradox n’ roll
“Hey,” you ask yourself, “what if The Cramps, Hasil Adkins and The Blasters all met and decided to form a band? And they all promised that, really this time, they were all going to tone down their respective ‘weirds.’ For serious. And then the first time they played they didn’t really tone it down that much, but you could tell they were trying, and that’s all that mattered. What would that sound like?” We have no freakin’ clue, but here‘s some Allston-based garage rock-blues fusion to give you some thinkin’ music.
