Best straight balls to the wall rock album I've heard in years. Tight, raw, thumping bass, not overproduced. This band will hit you straight between the eyes they do it all right and then some. Why this band is not on a major toul is beyond me. They can flat out play
Favorite track: Get Into It!.
Totally awesome debut record!
Highly recommended to all fans of psychedelic-blues-rock/retro-hard/proto-punk.
It's hard to describe sound of this band clearer than musicians have done themselves: "Blue Cheer kidnaps Tina Turner and ties her to the tracks of the Grand Funk Railroad".
Favorite track: 1725.
Disaster! Blue Cheer kidnaps Tina Turner and ties her to the tracks of the Grand Funk Railroad. The Wild Eyes express bears down from San Francisco, wheels churning. In the tender, drummer Ben Richardson and bassist Carson Binks (Saviours) fuel the engine with syncopated clatter and incendiary rumble. Whirling riffs and searing, psychedelic solos by guitarist Chris Corona (Floating Goat, Hazzard's Cure) soar from the smokestack. Just before the crash, a soulful siren: singer Janiece Gonzalez, whose warning comes too late. Carnage! Then, from the wreckage – twisted metal, pulverized rock, burning soul – comes “Get Into It!” a new album on Who Can You Trust? records. Celebration! The Wild Eyes express thunders on!
"I thought Who Can You Trust Records had really hit a peak with Hot Lunch, another incredible band, but in Wild Eyes S.F. they have set their bar so high it’s starting to form ice!!!" - The Sleeping Shaman
