The Thingz- Troubles Begin LP. The Thingz are a Long Beach who’s been jamming around since the late 90’s. These guys are definately coming from the Billy Childish, Headcoatees lineage of Garage rock where simple is more and the trebley riffs reign supreme. At times you can also hear flashes of New Mexico’s The Drags playing fiery full throttle Garage Rock with a snotty Punk Rock snear and dueling male/females vocals. The mid-fi recording really help carry the tunes, so the songs don’t sound to raw with the chunky guitars and vox planted firmly at the front of the mix. Fans of the Tina Lucchesi (Midnite Snaxxx, The Bobbyteens, Deadly Weapons, Trashwomen) school of Rock ‘n Roll will dig. This one is self released by the band and includes an insert lyrics sheet.
