  Z 28 - Wrecks From the Highway
By FRACTURE Fanzine #23 -Dave Stuart submitted

Kinda hokey 50s/60s garage punk, the stuff that goes down a storm at those Las Vegas weekend grinds, that’s fine, I can see the attraction but I feel not the allure. It’s just too gimmicky for me, sure I used to love the CRAMPS in small doses, but I just get real tired of this real quickly. Not enough of those real important hooks, I’m sure it’s fun as hell to play this type of music and maybe it’s best appreciated in a whiskey-soaked bar, crackling out of an old analog 50s PA system. But man, this was pretty hard work to sit through and I’m just not a fan of kitsch 50s artwork and style, unless I am someplace where the authenticity drips real. Nah this is definitely beyond me, and this is from someone who loves GIRL TROUBLE, The FLESHTONES and The CRAMPS when the mood hits. But it’s not so much the style that is as perturbing, as the lack of any quality songwriting. They even manage to turn the “Dukes of Hazzard” theme into a bland squib. That should be a shit-kicking, redneck, drink, fight and fuck anthem! I’m just not sure British people should be allowed to partake in this genre, it rarely seems to work.
