Dick's Recommendations

Pet Sun - Feel Like I'm Going Away

Starting with the title track, Canadian garage rockers Pet Sun fly out of the blocks with a killer rock 'n' roll tune. The ferocious 'Gimme Your Soul' follows; a minute-and-a-half of flat out punk rock. The revved-up excellence of 'Feelin' Lazy' keeps the pace levels up to a maximum.

The second half sees a marked change in the tempo starting with the melodic 'Goodbye Two-Head Monster' which ends with some fine guitar licks. Moody atmospheric instrumental track 'Lutes' preludes last song, the brooding 'Brides' which ensures a magnificent climax.
