The Blakes



        After Seeing the last half of The Blakes' set at Lollapalooza, I picked up their CD. One of the most energetic young bands I've seen, that energy translates well to the album. The Blakes have a raw sound influenced by the Who and Iggy Pop.

The songs on the album are all under 3 minutes, and are all fun little garage rock songs. If your looking for solos or wank, this is not the album for you. But if you enjoy some good time music with an awesome rhythm section, check out The Blakes
