Between 1995 and 1999 The Drags firmly established themselves as cult garage punk rockers par excellence. This Albuquerque trio sound like a mutant crossbreeding of The Gories, Trashwomen, Supercharger and The Ramones – loud and dirty,

“The rawest, most fucked up garage combo ever” Roctober “Dredging the dreck of lo-fi, hi-octane blues, Albuquerque’s Drags dish diamond-size ditties that drip with dissonance.

“Bad ass super trash. Short songs that have a lot of punk rock style and super hard hitting rotten guitars, tight snares and distorted bass” – Giant Robot
