The Strange Boys - Heard You Want To Beat Me Up

On the subject of violence, here are the Austin quartet The Strange Boys. Their music has its roots in the primitive proto-garage rock of high school bands, with Ryan Sambol's tortured nasal falsetto crooning and maximal strumming. It swings so loose that it barely holds together, leaving gaping holes for the last 60 years of roll'n'roll to slip through. Heard You Want To Beat Me Up is almost quaint in its use of teen worries, a tiny world caught in a vast lens all heard through a knackered transistor radio. From the 2009 album The Strange Boys And Girls Club.
