MAXIMUM ROCK N ROLL (USA) #378 OCT 2014 Ya just don’t see the Incognito, Rave-up and Swami reissue jobs around much anymore, so Alien Snatch has taken up the slack and made this classic NYC punk available for the masses to marvel at yet again. The quick sell is that this all canonical shit at this point: “Let’s Get Zooed Out”, “Sick On Yesterday”, “Primitive”…fuckin’ hell, unbeatable. Nearly 40 tunes, none of ‘em duds. If you don’t already have this stuff, you truly need it now. (MC)

RAZORCAKE (USA) NOV 2014 The Testors were a New York City punk rock band when it meant a lot to be one. They were contemporaries of great bands like the Ramones, Richard Hell and the Voidoids, and the Heartbreakers, and Sonny Vincent was the guitarist and vocalist. They had that late seventies New York sound with a lot of rock’n’roll and a lot of skinny-city-kid attitude, and they left the overall impression that they were on heavy drugs (though I don’t know if they really were). It fits right in with early stuff by The Cramps or stuff from the Dead Boys’ Young Loud and Snotty. As the name would imply, these two CDs have every song that the Testors recorded, both in the studio and live. It’s pretty fucking awesome (SC)
