The Wildebeests – ‘Gnuggets’ – Album review

Originally published: The Stool Pigeon

The Wildebeests are not the kind of garage band that you would hope to return to the garage that they crawled from to leave the engine running. Instead, the band features members of The Headcoats, Milkshakes, Thanes, Kaisers and Masonics, scuttling back to a fumigated time when rampant, raw beat music was as original as a SAAB 99. A double album featuring thirty three songs that hit or missed in their time, rerecorded and polished with a Black & Decker sander for that real vibe. Proving you can’t buff a piece of shit, but you can throw it up against a wall for a new generation to see it in all its natural, graphic glory.
