THE CHARGERS STREET GANG “HOLY THE BOP APOCALYPSE”
Straight outta Controllsville by way of Cleveland comes Holy the Bop Apocalypse, the debut album from the Chargers Street Gang. The pride of Ohio serves up an audio reminder why people loved rock’n’roll music in the first place. Imagine a mix of Detroit Rock City, some of their hometown’s storied musical history (a la Pere Ubu, the Mice, and Dead Boys) with a bit of Stones swagger thrown in, resulting in a wild, high-energy record that’s guaranteed to make you move.
“Recorded at the Sweatbox in Austin, Texas, ace producer Tim Kerr captures perfectly the band’s sonic attack. The Chargers mix up sounds of MC5, Sun Ra, and Stooges and spit it out with the energy that was delivered by the New Bomb Turks on their first album. Definitely a band to take notice!” – Gregg Kostelich, Get Hip Recordings
