Glow The Ghosts Are Out

Hailing from Boston by way of Two-Tone London circa 1979 and Detroit circa 1966 comes the organ-tastic blasts of the Glow’s debut full-length. The band’s sound is an international noise conspiracy that fuses ’60s Motown garage rock, ’70s Northern Soul-inspired ska and early ’80s punk with a distinctly modern edge. Think ? and the Mysterians’ "96 Tears” via Elvis Costello and Social Distortion and you get the idea. Ben Kettleson’s sneering vocals and keyboard flourishes, which are front and centre, are the backbone of the band’s sound and a solid reminder of what dangerous rock’n’roll is meant to be. Break out the Fred Perry polo shirts and enjoy. (Bankshot)
