The mighty return of Virginia's Candy Snatchers! Their first new recordings in over 10 years! Hans Molnar (of The Hellbenders) steps in to fill the big shoes of the dearly departed Matthew Odietus. He very tastefully plays in Matthew's style and all I have to say is it sounds like the Candy Snatchers. Longtime Snatcher rhythm section Doug "Goose" Duncan and Sergio "Sgt Stash" Ponce hold the train on the tracks as the incomparable Larry May wails over it all. Larry's unmistakable voice has held up perfectly. Sounds like vintage Candy Snatchers. If you like a big helping of frantic rock and roll with your punk rock. The Candy Snatchers are your ticket.
Side A: Shame Shivers
Side B: Must Be The Cocaine (Trash Brats cover)
Candy Snatchers vocalist Larry May has repeatedly expressed his love of the Trash Brats and this song in particular over the years. With quotes such as "Rock for No Reason. Best fucking band" and "7" version still the greatest song of all time. T shirt greatest shit they could ever print." So I approached him about covering the song earlier this year as a part of the Detroit covers singles series and his enthusiasm grew. The whole thing came together in a matter of a few weeks. Frantic and wild!
