Howie & The Hotknives- Tough Love LP. Newest band from Howie of the Mean Jeans! Howie And The Hotknives are from Portland and continue their Rock N Roll awesomeness after their killer debut on Felony Fidelity a few years back. With distorted guitars, dual male/female vocals, and an ass-load of attitude, these clowns definitely know how to get it done. Fans of the Shivvers, Flamin' Groovies, Ramones and Nikki Corvette will dig.
