Curse of the Subtones (MySpace.com/Subtones)

comment
The Subtones don't take the time to make their roughshod punk rock sound pretty, and it's better off for that. Backup singer Holly Berry provides all the color they need, filling out Ramones-style whoa-ohs and fronting the band for the power-pop showstopper "This Town." Titles such as "Somebody's Whore" and "There's a Curse on Me and Nobody Cares" tell you all you need to know about the sound and content.
