the New Age of the Reptiles
A view of Paul Dean's The Shirt Off My Back show at Baton Rouge Gallery. Pretty much what you think they are. Paul has a knack for pulling this kind of work off.
The Dirtbombs, Party Store
A Detroit garage band covers Detroit techno hits. Perfect in the way The Normal was perfect. In fact, if the Dirtbombs had included "Warm Leatherette" and maybe New Order's "Blue Monday" in this tidy little volume, the New Age of the Reptiles could Commense. Play all three of these at once and put on your sunglasses to observe the sun going dark.
The Normal, The Dirtbombs, New Order
