If only every garage rock fuzz pop combo doled out their fiercest party favors with verve, style and seahorses the way the Maxines do, the world would continue to rock on it's axis long after the sun does a dancefloor super-nova to the Max. Here is girl-group heart and surfer-boy swagger coolly balanced as The Maxines. Two former Texans, guitarist Matt Murillo and drummer Kelly Norman rock out, sing together and make the coolest music ever on their new 7" EP, Drugstore [IPU140], a volume in our International Pop Underground series of 7" 45 rpm phonograph records. Totally accessible and surprisingly PG-13, Drugstore is the kind of album you want to blast in the parking lot after school lets out, or bump while cruisin' the strip in your dad's T-Bird. They make garage rock as it was always meant to be made—fresh, rebellious and effortlessly fun.
