You loved them in the Special Moments, the Low Down Dirty Dawgs, Fly Ashtray, and God Is My Co-pilot -- now members of those bands have teamed up in Closet Case! You've gotta hear what they're doing now... they call to mind outrageous-era Kim Fowley, Richard Hell, Human Switchboard, Couch Flambeau, and the Icky Boyfriends.

Pat Duncan's show
From Brooklyn, by way of Massachusetts, comes Repellent. A mathy, guitar-based indie rock band that marries brash vocals, shoe-gazey space-rock guitar lines, and heavy, bombastic rhythms. Described by a listener as "a little like Elvis Costello and the Attractions. If the Attractions were people from Polvo, the Jesus Lizard, and the Allman Brothers or something... I don't know. It's pretty screwy, but I like it."
