a2467443347_2Rock On! This 45 is so reminiscent of the Rock coming out of every basement and garage across the USA during the late 50’s to mid 60’s. The Stents have a winner with this one, printed to Hot Cherry Red Vinyl and available for Download, this is a couple of sweet tracks to have. “Meet Mike Hate”, hey man, we all know a guy like this, hell, and we’ve been a guy like this. The B-Side “JPF” is also quite happening and this offering hip vibes from Hidden Volume Records in Baltimore, Maryland is way out but priced right for 5.00 for the 45 and a mere 2.00 for the download.

From a technical aspect this single is masterfully done and well recorded. This is the first single from the Stents, a true to form garage rock combo. Ripping full of old school riffs, and the mighty Hammond B-3 sound, it was recorded at Invisible Sound Studios in 2012. This Limited Ed. of 500 pressed on sexy red vinyl in Deluxe “Hi-Vo pocket sleeve by X10” is sure to sell out!

I give this a full 5 clicks of the volume knob, so get it and turn it up big time!
