Berlin Blackouts – Hightanic Socialites [IMPORT] - New LP
Regular price $ 25.00
Nonstop punk rock n roll fun, perfect junk to jumpstart your heart and get you back on track. Shout it out and twist about, they cover Del Shannon’s “Go to Pieces” (which shannon reportedly wrote for a Michigan black singer Lloyd Brown in 1964, but it became a hit for Peter & Gordon in 1965, and later that same year was included on Shannon’s album of covers One Thousand Six Hundred Sixty One Seconds With Del Shannon–doing a cover of his own song!, “Go to Pieces” also covered by Rachel Sweet in 1979). Nothing here that hasn’t been done before and everything that should be done again and again until the human race grinds to halt. – winch
Black vinyl. BERLIN BLACKOUTS know their stuff. And what is good.
So: Why reinvent the wheel when it's already rolling? The band has found its Signature sound already some time ago and just perfected it over the years. The magic formula "Tight & Smooth" is not shaken, it remains the ground on "Hightanic socialites". Album # 4 deliver the goods: 13 Melody Punk'n'Roll songs with proper drive and smooth finish, the relax factor was smartly increased. Sharp riffs, strong melodies, killin' singalongs: 35 minutes of best punk rock entertainment. 35 minutes BERLIN BLACKOUTS.
