Description

Form a portmanteau out of the words "punk" and "oldies"--as Shannon Shaw of Shannon & The Clams once did whilst describing her band--and the resulting voiced velar stop ends up sounding more like a hard G than a K. Depending on how it hits the ear, one might hear "oldies," or "goldies." With their shimmering church organs, reverberant surf-guitar leads and yawping garage-rock harmonies, this Oakland-based quartet certainly have the "punk" and "oldies" vibes covered (much like the Black Lips and the Growlers do). But there is also something quite sparkly about the group. That's where the "gold" comes in.
