New Bomb Turks Switchblade Tongues, Butterknife Brains

For those who think Jet and the Hives, it's time to get a little learnin' in your asses. These Columbus delinquents were doing the whole retro garage punk thing long before either of those bands had ever heard of the Stooges. This disc collects outtakes from their last recording session (for the full-length The Night Before the Day the Earth Stood Still) as well as two EPs, including one that never saw the light of day. Also included are a handful of covers of songs by bands as diverse as Aerosmith and Joy Division. A must for NBT completists and fans of high energy music in general. (Gearhead)
