Desperate, frantic, fab and furious, irrepressible art punks Screamin' Cyn Cyn and the Pons still have the same fuck-all attitude that they displayed so gloriously the first time I saw them whipping up a small audience at one of Freddy Faggot's open mikes down at Mr. Blues' Anchor Inn.
On the pert, to-point-the-point punk rave up "Pedro's" from their new album Screamin' Target Heart Rate, they both celebrate and mock the quotidian bacchanal of "girl's night out" down at the local margarita mill, skittering with abandon through the pumping, keyboard-laced track. Think of the B52s without all the commercially pitched cutesiness, and you'll have a pretty good idea what this wild party is all about.
Plus, like all cutting punk satire, "Pedro's" also puts the straights in their place with one arch line: "I want a house on a rock and a baby in my belly." Drinking for the children -- what a concept.
A MP3 of the track is available in the related downloads at right. More music by Screamin' Cyn Cyn and the Pons can be found at the band's MySpace page. They are playing at the season finals Mad Rollin' Dolls afterparty at the High Noon on Saturday, Apr. 28, as well as at the Crustacean Showcase at the Inferno on Friday, May 11.
