Wow--they should've called this "N.O.-Brainer." This compilation, N.O.-Fi, is "a live documentation of New Orleans garage/surf/punk." The list of bands included alone is enough to let you know you need this CD--the Royal Pendeltons, the Darkest Hours (w/Peg, formerly of the Gories), the Persuaders, and many more are featured. In fact, there isn't a single song on this CD that doesn't rock--from the smooth and tasteful instro action of the Ramparts, to the fun/silly surf of Famous Monsters (w/Sean, formerly of White Zombie), this CD is packed with goodies. I had heard some criticisms of this comp related to the cleaness of its sound but, let me assure you, the high level of this CD does not sap any of the power from what these bands are doing. You need this CD.
