REVIEW: Wimps - Repeat (1234 Go, End Of Time)

by Steve Wichelecki

Raucous California-style punk rock with an extra scoop of sloppiness, Portland's Wimps have that happy, bouncy though oddly sinister sound inherent to many West Coast punk bands of the late '70s and early '80s. A record that makes you want to pogo right out the window, 'Repeat' is a cavalier collection of barreling punk tunes chronicling hangovers, cheeseburgers, waking up late and other assorted minutiae of the rock 'n' roll lifestyle. Dirty-clean guitar jangles around dirgey female vocals and a driving rhythm section for a hypnotic, dance-worthy aural experience. Rumor has it Wimps will be here in Chicago this August, so keep your eyes peeled for that. Buy the album here.
