Electric Frankenstein/The Cheats- Split LP. Electric Frankenstein just cant fail. They’ve survived nearly 25 years creating mayhem in the underground and they’ve emerged with this killer new split LP with Pittsburgh’s The Cheats. Pulling from influences like the Dead Boys, Dictators, the Ramones and AC/DC, Electric Frankenstein tear through 4 new punk rockers includes a searing cover of the Dead Boys classic ‘Son Of Sam’ with devastating precision. The Cheats fire back with 3 new originals and take on The Backstreet Girls’ “Loaded”. The Cheats sound like a punked out hard rock hybrid of Antiseen, Nine Pound Hammer, Cocknoose and Nashville Pussy busting out a good ‘ol fashioned riff ‘n roll assault with flailing guitars and back country gusto. If you want to hear Electric Frankenstein’s version of ‘Son of Sam’ or The Cheats take on ‘Loaded,’ you better dig that old turntable out as they’re available exclusively on this vinyl-only release! Both of these bands formed at different times and places but they share a unifying appreciation for high-energy rock ‘n roll and do it well. 8 song banger here. Recommended.
