Review: 'SHEER MAG'
'Compilation LP'   

-  Label: 'Static Shock Records'
-  Genre: 'Punk/New Wave' -  Release Date: '31st March 2017'

Our Rating:
Tina Halliday is a big woman with a big voice. She fronts this four-piece band from Pennsylvania who formed in 2014 and blast out '70s riffs in raw MC5 style garage punk.

Hard Lovin' is, she maintains, "the only thing I know how to do" and proceeds to belt out such sentiments with a no holds barred attitude.

Nobody's Baby presents her as fiercely independent female who doesn't suffer fools gladly while Button Up is a 'fuck you' to all who doubt she means business.

This album length release - 12 tracks, 40 minutes - comprises remastered versions of the three EPs the Philly band have put out to date.

On balance, they are probably best heard in smaller doses as the screaming vocals and basic arrangements get a bit samey after a while.

As the tacky band logo suggests, art-rock is not their bag. Here you get strident not subtle.
