Gino And The Goons - GotThe Skinny
It's not just punk that's not dead, despite what most major radio stations might want you to think, rock n roll music is still alive and kicking too. One band that are leading the way, with their brand of scuzzy, down and dirty (but oh so catchy) punk and garage inspired R "n" R are Gino And The Goons. who despite only being around for a couple of years have already started building up a healthy, and impressive catalogue of music. Their debut album, Play Loud, was a fine introduction to the band but in my opinion their new lp, Shake It! (which is fresh out on Black Gladiator/Slovenly Recordings) ups the ante. Short, at only 8 tracks, it's a lean, mean beast that doesn't waste a moment of it's run time, definitely all killer no filler as someone once said.

Here's the opening track and a fine example of what you can expect, it's called Got The Skinny....
