Still don't like you

Before they moved from Boston to Ohio many moons ago, Cheater Slicks released a Jon Spencer-produced album, Don't Like You (In the Red), that was beloved by everyone except the band themselves; regardless, it put Boston garage punk back on the map during a dry spell. A decade later, they're still indispensably relevant: on the inside cover of the new Dirtbombs singles anthology, Mick Collins is holding a copy of Don't Like You under his arm. (And he oughta be: on the two-disc set, the Dirtbombs cover the Slicks twice.) With Hunches, the Tampoffs, and Black Cloud 472 Mass Ave, Cambridge 617.864.EAST.

Dirtbombs, "Possession" (mp3, Cheater Slicks cover)
Cheater Slicks, "Refried Dreams," "And I Cried," and "Think I'm Comin' Down," (mp3, live in Boston 2004)

(Guess the Cheaters aren't too happy with their old label. Look what happens when you click on their link to In the Red.)
