A dirty-knee’d rock ‘n’ roll racket, ‘Speed To Roam’ is as rampant a return to singles action as one could hope for from ex-Royal Trux-er Jennifer Herrema. Style-over-substance suckers limp-wristedly ripping up throwback rulebooks, take note: this is punker-than-fuck rock. It’s not setting fire to already furious flames, it’s starting a blaze all of its own.
Jen is one mean gal, man, and from below a collapsing wall of West Coast surf guitars, recently relocated to NYC, and backalley dumpster drums she’s about ready to pop one off - her voice, born of gargling r’n’r poison every night since ’88; her attitude, punked to perfection. Fashion-maggers, hop off here; with Jen back in business, punk is too filthy for the likes of you.
