Reviews

Winner of five (5) Washington Area Music Awards for Best Hard Rock Band and Vocalist, Adam West plays stripped down driving less-cock-more-rock punk. The band is super tight, fast and hard with minimalist leads and ultimately blues-based structures taking more from early garage punk bands but tightening it down (and speeding it up a little) to hardcore standards. Frontman Jake Starr's formidable campy but effective macho rocker stage prescence and his overdriven, pre-amp roasting voice has won him not one but two well-deserved Washington-area music awards for Best Hard Rock Vocalist. Or is it three? At this point, who's counting anymore? Everybody knows Jake Starr is the man, even in Europe. His label, Fandango Records, has put out all internationally distributed singles of all the coolest undergound old school punk bands. Come check out the man who makes it all happen.
