Though AMERICAN BREAKFAST has been laying waste to dive bars and basements across Chicago for close to five years with their patented brand of femme-fronted garage punk, this 7” record on Randy Records is actually their long awaited vinyl debut. And they explode out of the gate with Asscube, with guitars, bass, and drums all pushing forward at a breakneck speed through out the barely minute and a half song, sounding like The Shadows of Knight if they had heard The Ramones back in 1965. They lay back on the accelerator slightly on "Ice Cream," finding a solid danceable groove early on and locking into it as the vocals and guitar dip in and out of a frenzy. It isn’t until the B-side that American Breakfast shows any mercy, with the heat turned all the way down, offering up the dreamy and atmospheric "People I Know," a song that evokes visions of driving through the desert under the starts of a cold summers night. Each song is a hit on its own accord, but one thing that really helps set it apart is the impassioned vocals of French-born LAURE ELIE, whose inspired delivery coupled with her infectious French accent is simply incredible. You can really hear Laure putting all of herself and her emotions into each snarled line. Edition of 200 copies.
