The Husbands

Introducing The Sounds Of... (Swami)
by Craig Regala

Mix the Cramps "goo goo muck" record with the '80s indie/garage tradition of a few chords 'n' a cloud of gal howl and you'll be a-ok. Fun echoy basics that paint on the same cave wall as their forebearers in Girl Trouble, the early K rec's aesthetic, and anything Billy Childish was involved with, ever. Meaning: The "punk" has as much pre-'60s black, white, guy, girl schmaltz/soul research as anything the Seeds ever did. Everything's perfectly placed, sounds great, and if they come here to Columbus, Ahia, I'll get'm a show with the Patsies. Really, if you have any taste for such things, this is 26 well-spent minutes. Good singer, too. As "retro" as it signifies - well, it's really not: It's their choice of tools and recording that keeps it in the garage rather than the studio. Unless your some kinda facist, that's the right move.
