Hank Wood and the Hammerheads, Go Home

I’m halfway through this elpee on YouTube, listening at top volume while editing the biographical info of quarterbacks for the Fantasy Football Guide. Blame Hank and Co. for any errors.

There aren’t many modern punk bands that grab me, but this is clangorous driving rock n roll, a little garage-y, with some fun song ideas a la the first and second wave of bands with ugly album covers. These guys have that, too. But they don’t sound derivative so much as inspired to make their own noise. So they do!

I think this is their first album. The second one is called Stay Home, or it could be the other way around.

One thought on “Hank Wood and the Hammerheads, Go Home

  1. Me like. This is the kind of beautiful melody/extreme dissonance thing that was started by Husker Du and picked up by Fucked Up (in my world at least – surely I missed 100K bands in-between.).

    Hoping there’s bricks and mortar I can buy. Just can’t deal with the download-only shit.
