Glow in The Dark with Death Valley Girls - An Interview

Raramente a Burger Records dá uma bola fora, e definitivamente o que chega as páginas do TBTCI neste momento é absolutamente foda.

"Glow in The Dark" álbum recém lançado pela insanidade chamada Death Valley Girls é absolutamente obrigatório em qualquer coleção que se preze.

Proto punk, glam, noise, e tudo que se possa imaginar em termos de barulheira. Coloque na receita  NY Dolls, Stooges, L7, Cramps e mais um penca de referências e dá pra ter a dimensão do que se terá pela frente.

Rock and roll em sua forma mais clássica e primitiva, e mesmo assim simplesmente espetacular.
