THE TIME FLYS : "ENERGY / PC ACTION" 45....
Recognizing that I've reviewed them in reverse order, this debut 45 from Oakland, CA's TIME FLYS
isn't quite the kick in the tuchus their 2nd one was
. But it's still solid. The band traffic in a 70s KBD-meets-rip-roarin' glam style and are one of those groups that're real proud papas when people leap around like addled maniacs at their gigs. "Energy" does its best to lend a pumped-up soundtrack to such antics, and I reckon it's at least good enough to make a comp tape or CD-R for a clued-in girl (provided that you've made it to "the tape-making stage" with the young lady first
). "PC Action" is more HEARTBREAKERS
and (snore) DICTATORS
and suffers a bit by comparison. One look at this crew and you know they're either going to "break" into something well-loved very soon or they'll violently implode from infighting within a matter of months. I place my bets somewhere in the middle and hope there's an LP in 'em.
