BLUTT : “BING BANG BOUM (BAM) / POUR SI PEU / TELL ME NOW” 7”EP….Solid riffarama punk from Paris’ BLUTT on a Royal Records single from a year or two back. They seem to be copping their angle from a handful of ’65 and ’77 garage/early punk compilations & get their fast-n-dirty inspiration from both sides of the Atlantic. In fact, in a friend-catching nod to the transatlantic college radio audience, they bravely cover the hugely overrated DANIEL JOHNSTON’s “Tell Me Now”. Hey, the whole thing’s no “Slash Your Face” or “UFO Dictator”, but these BLUTT boys might be onto something that’d be kinda fun after polishing off a bottle of chateauneuf du pape.
