Darkness Rains (Suicide Squeeze Records)

Woah mama! LA’s Bonnie Bloomgarden (vocals/multi-instrumentalist and best name in music), Larry Schemel (guitars) and the rest of their up and at ‘em cohorts have really slapped down a fistful of aces with their latest album, which is fizzing with absolutely great rock tunes. They’re not doing anything earth-shatteringly original – there are bits of The Stooges in here, bits of glam, bits of early ZZ Top – but they’re doing it with such elan and verve that it still feels thrilling. Stompingly good – I love it.
