Were this the early 1990s, Garlic Fingers would be the empty cassette case you carry around all your pre-rolls in, because the actual tape wouldn’t leave the deck of the car you borrow from your dad. Lo-fi garage rock infused with energy, attitude and a grit that’s pure Dartmouth---Billie Dre & The Poor Boys are Black Lips trash meets T. Rex soul. The music has a spontaneity to it that makes it feel like the songs simply sprung to life the exact moment they were being recorded, and all that energy and excitement of creation comes through. A wonderful debut from an exciting new band.
