Nomads still going

I first heard the kind of Punk/garage/soul sound that bands like The Hives do back in the early 1990's from the Estrus, Get Hip,Tim/Kerr, Gearhead type of axis. In those circles, everything was obscure, everything was hidden, and everything undiscovered. Except the Nomads.  You'd find their records reviewed everywhere from Maximumrocknroll to Relix . Now, they're completely obscure, and they still have the form mastered. Whether you're talking The White Stripes, The Black Keys, the Hives or The Reatards, there's a line to be drawn that must intersect the Nomads.
So, the new record is called Solna and if you like garage blues punk, you might just want to give it a try. This is probably the only band that's played with both greats like Roky Erickson and Wayne Kramer but also The Hellacopters and  Chris Bailey. In other words, they're Rock music, for Rocknroll fans.
