Review: Vaguess – The Bodhi Collection

The Bodhi Collection

Street: 08.07
Vaguess = Breakers + Nightmare Boyzzz

As much as I love raw, snotty garage punk rock, listening to the 20 tracks that make up The Bohdi Collection tested my patience, and in the end, I had to switch on something completely different to maintain some composure. Sure, it has the recipe for trashy garage punk down to the letter with their simplistic lyrics, fast riffs and distorted vocals, but I’ve heard it before—from everyone and their mother. That said, I have no doubt that these guys could put on a good show that would inspire some wild thrashing about, and I can say that I like the sound that comes from this genre and from the Vaguess—sparingly. –Nick Kuzmack
