Meanwhile. Lo-fi punk rockers Phone Jerks have been busy boys recording this here mini album for Wanda Records. Outta Naumburg Germany Phone Jerks play hard and don’t hang about but when they click they can Rock like a motherfucker. Take the barnstormer of ‘Back To Bootcamp’ then follow that up without taking a breath with the awesome ‘Kill Kill’ hell they even reference Little Richard and the Dolls so what’s not to like? Take a swill of that Thunderbird wine, ruffle your hair, shrug your leather jacket on your shoulders and count us in 1-2-3-4 and away to go. Phone Jerks rip it up.
Six tracks is enough, for now, I guess at times it’s exhilarating and breathtaking. Who said punk rock was a young man’s game I could Slamdance and pogo along to these six easily even if it totals less than twelve minutes who cares its always quality over quantity. ‘Rubberhead’ channels Dee Dee perfectly well and the world needs that right now tune in a turn-off. To be fair you can hear elements of Dee Dee’s spirit running through these tunes like the chorus of the parting shot ‘Don’t Ring Me up’.
