Ever hear Johnny Thunders, Stiv Bators, Iggy Pop--the trash/thrash glam-punk New York City CBGBs street scene of the late '70s? Guitars slung low, arms flailing 'round the stage with wanton abandon, vocals snarled and spat out with complete disdain... rock & roll as she was originally written in the Guns N' Roses book of How to Have a Good Time? Leopard skin, leather, and long hair... Do you yearn for the days when everyone wore black and people got beaten up in the street for their musical allegiances? Do you still miss Dogs D'Amour? Vancouver, B.C.'s Black Halos (formerly the Black Market Babies) do, and they're not ashamed to let people know it, either. Their debut album is full of songs with titles like "Fucked from the Start," "No Road of Dreams," and the call-to-arms "Retro World"--songs aiming to restart the rock revolution now! --Everett True
If Stiv were here...
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Or if Johnny or Jerry were here too... Years ago when Johnny died I was given that terrible news by Mike Watt in a small city in Canada where Firehose was playing that night. Everybody was down. It has been years since a band sounded this raw, this real, but I hope Stiv, Johnny, and even Mike Watt feel a sense of vindication after hearing this album. Johnny would cock his head back, Stiv would chortle, and Jerry Nolan would deliver that final smack of approval."

"D.O.A. gave us something to do and think about in 1981. And now in 99 The Black Halos are taking us into their world, their retro world. We gotta say thanks for the future now!!"
