Yeah, I know it's only February, but I'm surrendering. Next week, Nick Curran & The Lowlifes will be releasing their new record, "Reform School Girl," and I'm going all in. This IS, and will continue to be, the best record of 2010.
(Sorry, I think I may have drooled a bit. Excuse me...)
This is primal. It's what Little Richard created and few have duplicated. From the genius production that will confound you--you'll swear you are listening to some lost, crazy-ass rock and roll record from 1958---to the killer riffage and relentless energy, "Reform School Girl" has been kicking my ass for a few weeks now. I couldn't wait anymore. It's time you heard it, too.
Here's the title track
