***Modern day psychedelia — coming right at you with lightning speed. The Cuts’ self-titled LP is finally available on everyone’s favorite digital format! Several years ago rock scribe and all around tastemaker Mark Murman released this album on vinyl on his superb Rock’n’Roll Blitzkrieg label. The Cuts had already released a single for Lookout Records that displayed a straight-ahead punk/garage/rock’n’roll style a la DMZ or the Real Kids (and no one currently alive on Earth does not absolutely adore DMZ and the Real Kids), but by the time they recorded their first fulllength they had already moved on to a more psychedelic sound (by way of late ’70s NYC). Did someone say “13th Floor Elevators meets Television”? The Cuts stand apart from any contemporary garage rock purveyors. Tough as nails, neurotic, simplistic, big, deep, catchy and devastating all at the same time. Genuine decathlon scorch.  
“Set free after one EP and left to their own devices, The Cuts retreated to a muddy woods where they stumbled across Sky Saxon declaring himself as their own personal Yoda. Taking what they needed and ignoring his cosmic declarations they wandered back to the bright streets.… This ain’t the fake “look at my white belt” garage rock. It’s dirty fuzz invented the day before psychedelic rock (the war and LSD terror, not the flowers-and-weed scene). Even when they sound like they wannna have a good time, you’re waiting for someone to sneak up from behind 
and stick a knife in your back.” —Smashin’ Transistors
