Make no mistake, this is not a Beat band in the English Beat sense. Los Angeles’ Beat Killers are an out-and-out garage punk band with such influences as the Stooges, MC5 and The Swinging Neckbreakers. The music is fast, aggressive and melodic with good, strong vocals. Of relatively current bands, they most remind me of the Seattle band The Makers, but with the addition of a farfisa/organ to the mix. The Beat Killers are relentless. Don’t expect any ballads; these guys rock!

1 review for BEAT KILLERS, THE: Beat, Broken, Bruised CD

  1. Dave O’Halloran (Mongrel Zine)

    Fast, furious and fun could have easily been the title of this one as it certainly sums it up quite nicely. Prime rocket fueled 60’s garage pounders that’ll get you up and dancing whether you want to or not. It’s got that good fast energetic beat, lots of fuzz, throbbing organ and all of the screams and snarls the recipe calls for to make your evening complete! 7 band penned originals and a ripping version of ‘Hey Joe’ all add up to some major fun. And one more reason to grab this one for your next shindig, Ex-Fuzztone/Speedie John Carlucci handles the bottom end in this combo… a current fave on Radio What Wave!
