Album Review

Throw Rag's approach to punk rock is refreshing and yet still time-honored. "Space Hump Me" has a lot of early-'70s punk in it, particularly with the sneering vocals and simple arrangement such as the Damned. Lead singer Captain Sean-Doe never lets loose as the song is wild but still quite tight, much like "Hollywood," which appears later.

And it ends on a good note with the crunchy rock riffs on "Demons in a Row," a mix of horns and AC/DC circa Bon Scott.

In the middle of the otherwise barren Colorado Desert in Southern California, second only to Death Valley in its utter desolation, there is the improbable Salton Sea, an enormous man-made saltwater lake created pretty much by accident in the early years of the 20th century. The crazed garage punk outfit Throw Rag are local boys, and the parallels between the landscape of their youth and the music they make are inescapable. Throw Rag's music brings together elements of vintage rockabilly, the Irish...
