WE GOT POWER! Melbourne power trio POWER have unleashed their debut LP, Electric Glitter Boogie, on the estimable Cool Death label and it’s a ripper! Claiming influence from the likes of the Stooges, T-Rex, Coloured Balls and Hawkwind, these guys emit a raw brand of boogie-punk with awesome, screeching vocals and killer angular guitar riffs (think Greg Ginn or X-Aspirations: think good things). And the packaging is something to behold: a swish gatefold with a textured sleeve a la Aztecs/Coloured Balls. It’s no mere record-collection regurgitation, though: POWER have the songs to match, making this sound their own. On the shelf now at R & R and it’s the friggin’ ALBUM OF THE WEEK.
