Two Reviews in Oculus Magazine - January 1999

Adam West/Candy Snatchers, "Vanilla" b/w "Picture My Face" [7 inch]
(Fandango, 1805 T St. NW #A, Washington, DC 20009)
Those who claim rock is dead are lame asses who can't understand that watered down FM radio refuses to play any artist with genuine ambition, serious intent and pure, unadulterated teen angst. Batman-monikered Adam West splatters obnoxious vocals above raunchy metal-stained guitar, buzzy bass and charging drums on "Vanilla."
The Candy Snatchers recklessly rough up Teenage Head's garage-punk classic "Picture My Face." The best way to experience these two belligerent bands is live, where they threaten crowds, party hard, jump around and simply put danger back into rock 'n' roll. Amen.

Adam West/Mazinga, "Live" b/w "One Rude Easter Bunny," "Each City Street" [7 inch]
(Fandango, 1805 T St. NW #A, Washington, DC 20009)
Containing a hilarious, anti-pop pabulum comic strip, "Land Of The Dead," this rollicking split single kicks into high gear and never lets up. Infused with adrenaline by a live CBGBs setting, DC's Adam West sounds truly inspired on the Kiss-influenced rock anthem "Platinum" and the metalloid punk slammer "Speedbump."
Mazinga's side includes the loud-fast-rules "One Rude Easter Bunny" and the murky blitzer "Each City Street." Each features spitfire guitar, rumbling bass and some of the most relentless drumming you're likely to encounter. Primal aggression rarely gets this good.
