Kidnappers: Will Protect You 12"

Alien Snatch Records


Killer LP from this German '77 punk / power pop band. I'm super picky about stuff in this style, but Kidnappers really nail it with jangly guitars that sound quite a bit like the Exploding Hearts, as well as punk energy and brilliant songwriting that can't help but recall Matador-era Jay Reatard. Like Reatard's solo stuff, this is one of those records that's punk enough for the punks but more than poppy enough for just about anyone to get into it... recommended.
