Gino & the Goons - "She Can Take It"

Based in Tampa, FL, Gino & the Goons are the kind of rock 'n' roll that is rarely made these days, and you don't realize how much your soul needs it until you stumble upon one of the few bands still doing it. Their latest single, "She Can Take It," lands somewhere between the garage rock of the 60's and the proto-punk of The Stooges. It's dirty rock music played with horns and fuzzed out guitar solos. I know I'm making this sound like a total mess, and it is. But it's also somehow incredibly catchy and pleasant to listen to, if that makes any sense.

Plus, they have one of the best press releases to describe the band of all time: 

Gino and the Goons are a American rock n roll band. They are fast and loose, loose and loud. Not so fast you can't dance and not too loose where you'll catch a VD. Gino Bambino started this band in 2007 and he will end it when he sees fit. Goons come and go. Some come and come again. Others don't. Stationed in Tampa, Florida, and traveling all over the world, they want to come to your town and boogie down. They want to make you sweat, dance and laugh all at once. In the spirit of the 50's, 60's and 70's they bring you a fart sound of today. I meant, fresh. A fresh sound of today. Rock n roll is forever! Gino and the Goons are forever!

You can listen to "She Can Take It" below. Off the Rails, the upcoming album from Gino & the Goons, will be out December 13 on Big Neck Records. You can pre-order the album here. For more on Gino & the Goons, check them out on Facebook and MySpace.
