the RETAINERS "Lose It" CD-R

A limited edition (mine is #13 of 25) CD-R of their recent P. Trash 7inch. Cold, cold towns can sure produce short fused powder kegs and that is just what this Minneapolis band sounds like. The ep's four tracks explode in all their echo'd out and shouting vox, razor wielding riffs and Chuck Berry/Jack Yarber/Bob Stinson mutant conglomeration with a gun pointed to it's head and told "play this solo with all your heart cuz your life may depend on it" glory. The four "bonus" tracks don't pussyfoot around at all either sounding like the Catholic Boys digging up the grave of the Brides then sharing a gigantic pile of backwoods meth.
