Touch Me Nots/Red Rockets- Split 7”. Red Rockets hail from the Provo, UT and kick up a nice amount of scuzz. They play with the fierocity of a punk band and pick at the skeleton of raw trashy rock ‘n roll. Reminded me a bit of the old Crypt band the Dirtys playing fuzzy medium-fi raw ass rock ‘m roll with a strong vocal presence and some pretty solid hooks. On the flip the Touch-Me-Nots have the balls to not only write a song called "Life of Crime" but also make it a really good one. The more I listen these guys the more I think their songwriting reminds me of Greg Cartwright’s by showing a real knack for penning classic sounding songs without being redundant. This is one the Touch Me Nots best tunes coming with a large portion of hot guitar licks and by the time Kelly’s chorus kicks in, it just totally seals the deal. They follow it up with a killer cover of Jonathan Richman’s ‘This Kind Of Music’ and the 7” includes a cool pull out insert.
