The Crazy Squeeze

L.A.'s Crazy Squeeze (members of Stitches, Teenage Frames, Superbees and Richmond Sluts) hauled their entire debut album out of that rarefied moment when glam rock and pub rock were turning into punk rock, a time when every good song had a great guitar solo and probably a great punchline, too. In fact, to put this in true record-nerd terms, their self-titled, 12-song LP sounds like six classic 45 singles from 1976 all hitting at once. It sounds like a mélange of Dr. Feelgood, Eddie and the Hot Rods and Cock Sparrer — covered here to great effect — plus Thunders, The Dolls, The Ramones (check out "Younger Girl") and of course The Joneses, whose "Pillbox" and "Tits and Champagne" I'm sure Crazy Squeeze could play from memory. Essentially, it's rock & roll—you remember that stuff, right? —Chris Ziegler
