Album review: 'That Was Then...This Is Wow!' 

The 8 Balls Youngstown

'That Was Then...This Is Wow!'


I usually stick to Rochester bands when reviewing records, but I liked this CD from The 8 Balls Youngstown so much that I simply had to pull on your coat for a minute. The 8 Balls Youngstown formed in the beginning of the 1980's as a loud-and-fast bar band, like The Real Kids and The Heartbreakers.

Flash forward, the Ohio band is older but still giving it a go, with music that's in-your-face and raunchy. It mirrors a time when punks had no punk to call their own - you know, the dark ages. "That Was Then... This Is Wow!" ain't nothin' new for most of us, but it's exciting for all. Now let's get them to come to town. 1-2-3-4!
