The Damn Times

Don't Like People (Munster)

Texas Platters

Imagine the MC5 high on meth instead of revolution or AC/DC wallowing in punk. Loud, raw, and reckless serve as tenants on the Damn Times' debut vinyl – 15 years in the local making. Ryan Anderson spews generalized animosity on "Don't Like People," his Bon Scott screech propelling garaged-out classic rock. B-side "I Got This One" lacks equal anthemic prowess, but builds character on Chad Nichols' madcap double guitar solo. FFO: Motards, Chumps.
