The Blind Pets

Smashed

If Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge as Mudhoney decreed, then the Blind Pets just earned a second helping. The local trio's debut offers a sweaty throwback to the glorious barbarism of grunge – lean, convulsive, and with no shortage of broken strings or instruments. It's a kick in the pants that lasts close to an hour, with Red River boogie "Buy Yourself" and a squalling "Fever" being choice highlights.
