The Fleshtones have been a non-stop party rocknroll machine that really fits the bill of being UNSUNG. They combine perfect timing and hooks with some serious goofiness. Overlooked as a footnote in the 80s newwave thing, they've really been a buttkicking living entity all along. I mention this record only because it was there most recent GREAT record, but I couldve mentioned the one before this one (Laboratory of Sound), or any of their other "regular" releases. Keith Streng has a massive catalogue of hooks, and PeterZ is a brilliant and singer. It's all garagy, with really fine melodies as well. Un(s)toppable.
