CD Review: Straight To VHS - Rewinder

CD Review by Adam Wujtewicz

New London’s garage punk trio, Straight To VHS, are back and they’ve got a new album.  Rewinder is lo-fi sprint through 11 spirited agro-pop anthems.  Informed by 60’s garage rockers like The Standells and modern punk icons like the late Jay Reatard, Straight to do traditional 4 chord rock n’ roll sped up and entirely distorted. 

Even with the speed on Rewinder the rhythmic nature of the songs is what set Straight to VHS apart from the pack of punk bands playing today.  Songs like "One Thing" and "Your Face" call out to you to pogo.   While some may consider singing "WOAH" and hopping up and down to guitar rock a thing of the past, Straight to VHS are trying to make believers out of you, and my guess is they’ll succeed.
