B Movie Rats/Hellbenders-”Distilled” 12" (Dead Beat Records)
Both these bands would have fit in really well on the “Fistful of Rock n Roll” comps. Both play pretty fast, straightforward punk n roll, think Electric Frankenstein or Reverend Horton Heat without the upright bass or silly clothes. B Movie Rats are great and definately start off the record well, but Hellbenders are definitely the reason to buy this. I'm not really too into this whole straightforward garage rock scene (I tend to stick more with the 60s punk/mod sound), but these guys do this with so much intensity it's hard not to enjoy.
