Album review: 'Schlock value' 

Harmonica Lewinski

'Schlock Value'


Cut the heart out of the Linkster's "Jack The Ripper" and goose it with an Elvis Costello-esque, jackbooted march, and you've got the opening track to "Schlock Value," Harmonica Lewinski's new, most excellent seven-inch pleasure platter of colorfully psychedelic surf trash. Recorded in the bowels of Irondequoit, the band punches a decidedly delicious series of jabs into rock 'n' roll's golden years and guts. HL adds its own unparalleled twists and turns to the mayhem, à la The Cramps, with an organ drone fit for Halloween and vocals reverberating from the grave.
