The Flies: Get Wise [Homestead, 1985]
Do dirty guitars, readymade chords and bass lines, and straight four-four make this now disbanded trio garage-rock? I suppose so, though rock and roll would be a better way of putting it. Either way I'm a sucker for guys who can turn a Carl Perkins chestnut into a Velvet Underground dirge and begin something called "Jesus Christ" with talk of aerosol sprays--which gets us to Mace, not to mention the ozone layer, in case you were wondering.
