Demolition Doll Rods - LP - Rating: 7/10

The Doll Rods’ debut LP delivers with the same energy as their previous 7″s. Drums (well maybe a floor tom and a snare), 2 guitars, and some pure rock energy are what comprise this Detroit three-piece. Partially produced by Jon Spenser, this album bares little resemblance to that bass-less band (at least their current stuff). The songs are stripped down to their barest of essentials, one of which seems to be a general lack of high fidelity. The album’s best moments are “Psycho Kitty” and “Raw”. The latter features synchronized limbo moves in their live shows. The LP boasts a wonderful, yet unnecessary gatefold sleeve.
