Walter Lure & The Waldos “Wacka Lacka Boom Bop A Loom Bam Boo”

(Cleopatra Records) cd review by Anguish Young ...If you're anything like me, you probably much preferred the Bowery when it was the unholy habitat of junkie film makers, winos, hookers, and immigrants who flagrantly sold untaxed loosie cigarettes on every street corner in broad daylight to the millionaire's only, Disneyfied, gentrification bruncher, yuppie version, with...

The Connection “Wish You Success”

"Wish You Success" is the third full length album of The CONNECTION. The band mixes its American punk rock roots ("You Know", "In The End", "Mechanical Heart") with excellent pop songwriting ("Checking", "Color Me Unimpressed", "What a Shame"), and their power pop rock'n'roll sometimes flirts with country music in "Wish You Success" or in "Thinking...
