The Grannies = Turbonegro + The No Tomorrow Boys 

This 13-track album starts out with “Wade in Bloody Water,” and by its conclusion, I knew I was in for an adrenaline-filled ride. It’s power-driven, raw punk n’ roll with shredding riffs that kept me hooked—needless to say that such an intense dose of rock n’ roll from numbers like “Glittershitter” and “Corner of Fuck and You” suggests that this is not something for the fainthearted. However, apparently for shits and giggles, this LP includes the remixes “Corner of Fuck and You (Ben Addison Remix)” and “Glittershitter (Matt Flores Remix).” The remixes are kind of fun, but definitely a bit off from what seems to define Ballsier. That said, if you’re in dire need to get your blood pumping again, check this out. –Nick Kuzmack
