straight arrows - it's happening

STRAIGHT ARROWS are jangly lo-fi garage rock from AUSTRALIA...... ........where quite the rock n roll scene has sprouted up.......along with them, there's UV RACE, ROYAL HEADACHE, EDDY CURRENT SUPPRESSION RING, CIRCLE PIT, KITCHEN'S FLOOR and SUPER WILD HORSES.....just to name a couple......  all of these bands playing wild garage inspired art punk......

but the STRAIGHT ARROWS have their own unique take......part 60s psych, a bit of husker du inspired college rock frenzy and a whole lot of boozy fuzzed out punk attitude........    this is a band you need to check out.........
