royal headache - s/t lp
maybe i'm fixated on the australia garage/punk scene right now, but everyday i hear about some new awesome band from there.....and HOLY SHIT all these bands are touring their way through chicago to GONER FEST...... KITCHENS FLOOR, STRAIGHT ARROWS, DEAF WISH and ROYAL HEADACHE.....
ROYAL HEADACHE just released their debut full length on RIP SOCIETY records and it just might be one of the most catchy soulful garage punk lps i've heard since the Dirtbombs released Ultraglide in Black......
parts 60s soul, 80s college rock/post punk and lots of garage jangle and punk chaos......ROYAL HEADACHE sounds like MISSION OF BURMA, the REPLACEMENTS, JAY REATARD, the THERMALS and the BUZZCOCKS all rolled in to one fun band........... highly recommended!
