Best reverential straight-up 60s punk of the 21st century? I’d find it hard to argue if you chose this new album from Richmond, VA’s THE AR-KAICS to fill that hole.

Their new and only album is terrific, a raw, overly amplified speaker blowout in the Keggs, Things To Come, Murphy & The Mob school of bent, loud garage pop music. I’m going to play it a bunch on my phony radio show/podcast, starting w/ the next episode. Download the whole thing yourself here.

Have always been a repeat listener of THE DONNAS’ 1997 debut LP, a high school ramalama Ramones-athon that never gets old to these ears. I saw them live around this time, just as they were graduating from simple riffs (and from high school) and into a dumb cars/boys/rockin’ vibe a la The Runaways. They were great.

This song, “Lana & Steve”, features one of the all-time great rhyming couplets: “She was from San Mateo/Her Dad was in the CIA-o”.

Here’s something I wrote about the album back in 2004.
