Review: Thee Fightin’ Fish 4 Song E.P.

With menacing opening guitar throbs on “The Creeper” (not the famous punk song by Boston’s Unnatural Axe, another creeper!) Thee Fightin’ Fish enter the ring with gloves off. If you like early New York Dolls barreling all-out assault which begins with lyrical admonitions while adding smart, tight musical attitudes at the start, middle and finish of each blitzing tune, this well-recorded quartet of selections will fit the bill. Track 4, “You’ll Get Yours” is probably my favorite with liberal use of the “f” word and George Kondylis drumbeats rocking along with Bob Roos’ incessant guitar. Andy Excuse is on vocals, Matt Robinson on bass and on “Lost My Job” and “Don’t Make Me Suffer” they provide a unified front. Great stuff that you can sample on Reverb Nation dot com / Theefightinfish with no g after “fightin.”
