Review: The Crumbs

The Crumbs
“Last Exit”

Bouncy, upbeat punk rock that blends the infectious nature of pre-stardom Hives with the straight-up, no-frills delivery of early garage rock that you could only listen to on a 45 RPM record in your grandfather’s Formica-lined basement.  Twinges of country sneak in here and there, giving the whole vibe this feeling of cowboys who’ve totally let loose and you just wanna be in on the fun.  Quick without being rushed and inoffensive without being as sissy as The Dickies, this is the closest you’ll come to agreeing with your stupid club-going friends on how cool underground music can be without alienating the cud-chewing masses who have no idea that colleges have radio stations.
