Paybacks Knock Loud

Let's hear it for another garage band from Detroit. Thankfully, that city is so full of different bands that the Paybacks can be thrown in with the White Stripes and Von Bondies, even though they sound nothing like either. Knock Loud leans more towards the sleazy glam rock side of the New York Dolls and Guns n' Roses. Lead singer Wendy Case has the perfect snarl to sing along with the lightning speed sound of the heavy rock'n'roll produced by her band. None of the tracks really stand out, but the record is consistently fast and heavy. For those taking an interest in Detroit's wide array of garage styles, the Paybacks will definitely be a band to add that needed punch to any collection. (Get Hip)
