Booji Boys – “Weekend Rockers” LP
Fuzzed-out rampage through some brain-boiling tunes. It’s not an obvious comparison, but Booji Boys have a grip on melodic songwriting that reminds me of The Wipers, albeit with added high-speed energy and reverby overload. Husker Du, too… something in the guitar tone, I guess… Somewhere between Huskers and Jay Reatard, perhaps… Booji Boys are from Nova Scotia, are named after the character who sang in Devo, and this is their second full-length.
endnote: Devo pronounced the name as ‘Boogie Boy’. The misspelling was due to a lack of the neccessary letraset. Devo being Devo thought that the odd spelling looked right. I hope the Booji Boys pronouce it the same way…
