GG King: Joyless Masturbation 7"
Latest single from these Atlanta legends, ex-Carbonas but you already knew that. On this release the band move away from the more experimental sound of their LP and back toward the pop-inflected punk on display on their early singles. "Joyless Masturbation" is a mid-paced song with an almost new wave-ish feel and those classic big vocal hooks that Greg King mastered long ago. Carbonas fans, though, will see the b-side here as the real gem, an upbeat little punk number that could have fit right on that band's 2nd or 3rd LPs. High-quality stuff as always from this unstoppable project. Total Punk Records
