Slickee Boys underwhelm

"The Slickee Boys were a great garage pop band in the mid-to-late 80's and I caught them live at least a dozen times. This collection does not do the band justice as the acoustics are dreadful and it sounds as if they are playing in front on 30 people (it was recorded in France.) It's too bad the Twin Tone LP's are not available on CD as they are a true embodiment of the power of the band. If you like garage music, please seek out Cybernetic Dreams of Pi on vinyl as it is definitely worth the effort."
Live - From France?!

"First - you have to understand the slickee boys were a great SurfPunk band from the DC/Baltimore area. I saw them many times at many of the cool clubs, most of which are gone. :(
Ok, now - somehow they hooked up with a french label and went on tour in france. And this CD is the result.
It's got many of their "hits", and some cool covers, you get a really good feel for what the band sounded like live, and it ain't bad.
Sound quality is pretty good, especially for something probably recorded in not the best circumstances, but hey - it's the slickee boys! If you want it, this is it! ;)
Somebody asked about their twintone stuff - do a search on TwinTone and check out the website, they were selling it there on a "you buy it we burn it" basis. Which is cool, cuz if you think about all the great (or stuff someone might think is great) music that's been made over the years locally it gives you hope you might be able to track it down :)."
