Daylight Robbery- Ecstatic Vision LP ~MASSHYSTERI!
Daylight Robbery- Ecstatic Vision LP. Second album from this excellent Chicago punk band. You don't have to be a music critic to hear a little John and Exene in this three-piece's male-female vocal interplay, but Daylight Robbery doesn't stop with X. They combine the short sharp bursts of late-70s west-coast bands like the Bags and the Wipers with a more modern day band like Masshysteri. In general it reminds me a little bit of Masshysteri's later stuff, but more honest, less affected, and generally more American-sounding. The songwriting, production, and performances here are top-notch. RECOMMENDED!
