Audacity

In years to come, when the history of the New Garage Rock Revival is being written — or listicled, more likely — somebody needs to make sure Fullerton’s Audacity get their rightful place at the front. For years now, they’ve been the good stuff incarnate, and their newest 45 on Suicide Squeeze is one more worthy slice of wax: A-side “Counting the Days” is like Bleach-y Nirvana and Milo-era Descendents with a Thin Lizzy twin-guitar break in the middle, and the B-side is a cover of Delta 5’s “Mind Your Own Business,” done like Le Shok’s vicious year-2000 version. It starts like Flipper’s “Sex Bomb” and grinds that distinctive riff to a nub, ending up like something from X’s Aspirations LP. (That’s the Australian X — yes, there is another!) Plus they’re absolutely relentless live, too. Go see them in person to see how it’s really done.
