Chordvetts - EP

This is another gem from I Don't Feel a Thing Records. I wasn't kidding when I said I bought everything they had at the time. The only record they ever released that I regret not owning is the Neil Hamburger Remembers Richard Nixon record that was only available at the Phoenix Greyhound Park set that Neil Hamburger did way back when. I've seen a DVD of that performance, but I was not there so I missed out on the chance to own a super rare comedy record.

Anyway, the record at hand is the work of another Japanese girly garage group. What do they sound like? Just close your eyes and think about Japanese girls rocking out in their garage. The noise you hear in your brain is exactly what the Chordvetts sound like. The production value on this record seems thin and tinny, but that might be exactly what the Chordvetts were going for. Production values aside, they do a version of "I Fought the Law" that is awesome. This is not my favorite I Don't Feel a Thing release (That would be Tiger Shovel Nose) but it's still a good one. I once had a guy on a vinyl message board offer me way more than I paid for this record and I didn't sell. I don't know what that says about anything or anyone.
