Review: The Ritchie Whites

The Ritchie Whites
“Snitches Get Stitches”
(TKO Records)

A band clever enough to come up with a name as good as The Ritchie Whites should have been able to turn out an album better than this one.  “Snitches Get Stitches” is just kind of a limp disc.  The band puts together some fiery garage-style grooves, especially on “Human Bondage,” but singer Chris’s up-and-down delivery is ordinary and the lyrics are even more so.  “Snitches Get Stitches” doesn’t approach intolerably bad, but it’s not as good as the name of the band might lead you to hope.
