Music Reviews: Pink Smoke - "No Party"

If you read this blog from time to time, you'll know I'm a sucker for great garage rock. And once again, I got turned onto another amazing band, Pink Smoke, who's latest release is called "No Party" and is out now on Jolly Ronnie Records

The album, actually it's being released on cassette with a download card for all of you who don't have a tape deck, has 12 tracks of fast beats, amazing riffs and plenty of attitude. The album kicks off with "E.T. Boy" with it's sing along chorus and na na na's, it's a fun track and good way to kick off an album. There's even an organ solo to solidify the bands garage rock influence and upbringing.

Other tracks like "King Of The Night", "Kicks" and "Breakdown" keep the momentum going with three chord chugs and enough sass to make you believe in the power of punk rock. When music is done right, it can make you feel like dancing, shaking and getting lost in the moment. And this album brings all of that and more to the table. The energy and excitement really come out on "No Party".
"Brain Dead Kid" is one of the best tracks on the record...not my favorite, but it's damn close. It reminds me of old '77 style NY punk rock. In your face and to the point, it's pure punk rock that you don't see alot of these days. Sonny Vincent and The Testors could have recorded this tune, it's THAT good! "(No) What I Said", IS the real gem on this record. The opening riff alone is worth the price of admission. This song is as catchy as a case of the clap. Solid playing all across the board. And the guitar solo is one of the best I've heard in a while. Great job guys!
Despite a crazy name, Pink Smoke bring their A game on "No Party". This truly is a great record. I'm not sure if the band has anymore material out there...but I'm gonna find out and pick it up if there is! But in the meantime, I HIGHLY suggest you all pick up "No Party" and see for yourself how kick ass garage style punk rock should be played!
