Trashlight Vision is just what the doctor ordered if your prescription called for some good old fashioned Punk & Roll. Loaded with sleaze and trashy from top to bottom the bands music rolls right off the city streets and saunters onto the stages of the dingiest, darkest clubs in town and from the sound of it I don’t think any of the members mind this at all. The band features Acey Slade on guitar and vocals and he’s most popularly known as a former member of The Murderdolls (the Horror Metal band fronted by the ghoulish singer Wednesday 13). “Alibis And Ammunition” is their debut CD and while it was originally released in the UK back in 2006, it wasn’t until Rock Ridge Music took them on in 2007 that the larger national fan base in the US was able to snare themselves a copy. It opens with “Dead Waves On The Air”, and energetic romp and stomp that’s bound to set you slamming and head banging. “Allergic To You” and “I Cant Wait To Do Nothing At All” keep the momentum going by offering up that pure Punk feel that’s sometimes reminiscent of old Social Distortion. “Screw Worm Baby” bops and weaves and definitely made me view this as a great live tune that gets the entire audience involved with the chorus and fists in the air. When the band gets to “Nola” I felt that they were offering up the most commercially viable tune on the release and this is a number that should have found a safe home on both terrestrial and satellite radio as opposed to the crap that is considered Punk in the mainstream media world nowadays.
