"Never turn your back on a good time/Because it might not happen again" sensibly concludes this Cincinnati four on the opening "Andy's Room," summing up their third album's danceable "gypsy rock." They're truly all over the place stylistically, but their attitude is geared towards being a ready for action party band, from R&B-ish rock like "Beautiful Thing," to the rockabilly stray cat strut of "Crash and Burn," to the whispery country folk nods of "Bad Idea" (giving way to Texas blues guitar noodling), to white-funky deliveries such as "Moon," "Stop," and the title track. And as master of ceremonies, Dylan Speeg has something of a hard-voiced drawl, somewhere between Danny Elfman as Oogie Boogie (especially), Brian Setzer, and head B-52 Fred Schneider. Crank up the kegger.
