SMOKERS are one of the coolest recent Bay Area bands to pop up, especially refreshing after a discussion I had with some bandmates about how lacking the area is for Hot New Acts these days. Drenched in Aussie punk ("Silver Tongue" in particular reminded me instantly of CELIBATE RIFLES, one of my many underappreciated faves), smoky high energy pub jams (DRONES, WASPS, etc...) and first wave early '70s proto punk, these tracks grab you instantly, and all I want is more than these 19 minutes.
