That old saying you should never judge a book by its cover is totally wrong in the case of record sleeves. The latest batch of Hozac singles arrived at my doorstep last week and the one that jumped out at me was the Wax Idols single. Its clean lines and grainy photo made it seem like it was 30 years younger than it’s 2011 copyright. In actuality this record was born in the present day San Francisco garage scene. Heather Fedewa who has spent time in Bare Wires and Hunx and His Punks is the main idol employing the help of members of Sic Alps and
Dreamdate the Splinters. The A-side, All Too Human reminds me a little of the Runaways with it’s confident swagger and chorus of Fedewa pining about being someone’s lover that drips with both lust and regret. Its crashing drums, ringing guitars and vociferous chorus make for an intense and satisfying three minutes. See for yourself.
