Naked City Romeos

by Naked City Romeos

Four of Las Vegas' pioneers of punk get together on their debut CD. Lead vocalist Eric Hill is widely considered to be Las Vegas' original punk rocker. In 1977 he spearheaded Sin Citys' first punk band, Bad Habits which morphed into The Swell and M.I.A. Guitar player Dirk Vermin has been playing in The popular Vegas punk band The Vermin for almost as long. Bass player Cory Naff was on the scene a couple years after Bad Habits in local hardcore favorite F8. Drummer Turbo Proctor has been a mainstay of the Vegas rock scene for over 20 years. Together they form a high energy quartet that pumps out clever, unpretentious punk/garage/hard rock.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"...In the Naked City Romeos, their long, shared histories combine into hooky, classic, late-'70s-style punk. Some of the tunes actually were penned by band founder Hill at the tail end of that decade, finally making their way onto a record for the first time in the form of the Romeos' recently completed debut. Like tonight's conversation, the tunes are loose and uninhibited, an off-the-cuff blast of dirt-beneath-the-fingernails rock 'n' roll...." (Jason Bracelin, Las Vegas Review Journal)

"Gawd Damn this is good! Frighteningly good! Dirty, Sleazy, Cartoonish like Punk Rock songs that are catchy like AIDS and just as quickly spread among the masses. It's got the Swagger and Sexiness of the New York Dolls, beefed up with some Dictators Attitude, all set about to the Damned's musical sensibilities. This CD sounds fantastic too - well recorded, and the guitars and drums are LOUD - just how I like them! ;-) Anyways, this band is comprised of some Old School veteranos that know what good Punk Rock music is all about, and they got together and wrote this collection of fantastic tunes to remind people that real Punk Rock isn't dead, but that it's just gone back to the underground where it belongs. Naked City Romeos sing about the lighter side of things, with subjects like Transsexuals, X Ray Vision, Girls in Bands, Rock N Roll Hair, T.V. Addicts, all skewered through the cynical, venomous viewpoint of Mr. Vermin & Co. The music sounds like anything you'd hear on any Vermin album, but it's the vocals by Eric that make all the difference. The dude can f*cking sing, and his delivery and attitude on these songs is beautiful. Standout tracks include Church Girls Are Easy, I'm Me, Kill The Rat, Just Enough and their absolutely stunning version of David Bowie's Cracked Actor. Dare I say that they do it better than the original? Yeah I do! This is just a fantastic release that is much appreciated in today's so called Punk Rock music scene. We need more Bands like this, dammit! :-) Do yourself a favor and pick this up. Go to the Wood Shampoo Records Facebook page by clicking here to grab a copy of this CD for yourself. You won't be disappointed. The Naked City Romeos nailed it with this release. Great stuff." (onethirtyeight.org)
