Great Dismal Swamis- Phantom Tollbooth 7". Fuck YES! Just as I was lamenting the death of quality bands today playing straight-up snotty Punk infected Rock N Roll, here comes the latest burner from the Great Dismal Swamis. Those of you who were around in the late '90s/early 2000s will recall just how much of a hot bed the Virginia Garage/Rock N Roll scene scene was back than. And the Great Dismal Swamis totally carry on in that tradition. The Great Dismal Swamis are a trashy Rock N Roll band from Norfolk who include members from the Candy Snatchers, Hydeouts, Big Bobby & the Nightcaps, Rats and The Phantom Creeps. This single is the shit. "Box Wine Bitches" sets my eardrums on fire with a perfect mix of ripping '77 style Punk Rock with a heavy dose of Estrus/Crypt Records Garage trash. And "I Wanna Get Ripped" could easily pass for some obscure Killed By Death classic and just flat out fuckin’ kills. This is nasty, Rock N Roll at its finest folks, come get some. RECOMMMENDED!
