W1VHEN Rock 'n' Roll started way-back
then, parents hated it, for good reason. You
all know about the big stars that broke na-
tionally and are now in the Rock and Roll
Hall of Fame but still aren't on the classic
FM stations. But even more scary were the
local hoodlums who would take over their
parent's garage and annoy the neighbors to
no end with loud loud loud demonic, beat-of-
the-jungle noises and endless streams of
rhyming bitches at the local girls who held
out against allowing them their real cool
time. In other words, a lot of kids found
something their parents couldn't control, in-
creasing its appeal exponentially.
Of course since that time Rock 'n' Roll
(in fact, it happened right away) has become
yet another Big Culture Business, with all
the bull-shit that goes with the term. Fortu-
nately though, some people have never lost
sight of the fun that can be had out in the
garage, and you won't have to be a grave-
digger to check out such a band when Pitts-
burgh PA's Cynics play Saturday.
Rock 'n' Roll is best experienced live,
but when that ain't possible it should be ab-
sorbed in three minute slices of total self-re-
lease - beyond that it is too easy to get dis-
tracted by whatever else is going on around
you. The Cynics understand this; although
they have two albums already out their best
records are their 45s. Unlike the Chesterfield
Kings, whose records only hint at the power
they display live, The Cynics' records melt
right on the turntable. These things are so
hot they are the only "return-upon-demand"
promo records I've ever had to return. Intense
slices of plain pure rock: fast fast bass,
pounding drums, psychotic organ, screaming
distortion, and more screaming 'bout muh
bay-bee from the vocalist, when he isn't on
though, and Gregg Kostelich, the "monster-
guitar" player, knows how important it is to
give the people what they want, as he also
runs Get Hip records, one of the prime
torchbearers of the "totally boss" 45 flame
these days. The band is releasing a new al-
bum before Christmas, about which he says
"you'll probably laugh; it's just gonna be
called Rock-n-Roll. We were gonna call it A
Tribute to The Cynics, cuz there's so many
of these fucking tribute records, but a lot of
people might think it's an old record, or re-
ally be other bands doing our tunes." (The
band will be appearing on the upcoming
Tribute to the Sonics, though). The record
delivers on the promise of the singles. It's
got both kinds of tunes, rock and roll, in-
cluding an excellent cover of the Unrelated
Segments' "Cry Cry Cry," which featurbs
the greatest opening truths this side of "96
Tears": "Woke up this morning and the sky
was black / My baby's gone and she woV't
come back." The album has plenty of the
elements that make the 45s so killer, lile
"fat Gretsch guitar, as opposed to a Les Paul
so it wasn't as metallic. We made it as hot
