The sounds that used to resonate from the walls of venues like Max's Kansas City and the Ritz are resurrected courtesy of grizzled Gotham city rockers She Wolves, whose three-song affair Enjoy Damnation portray the NYC rock underground the way it used to be - as a gutter slugfest full of wailing guitars and brazen rock 'n' roll attitude. No frills and balls to the wall, songs like "Keep Your God" work as the perfect backdrop for the seedy strip clubs that used to be lined up across 42nd Street, while the deep groove pounded into your skull from "Sycophant" brings it dirty, loud and raw. Denouncing the gentrification of the Big Apple with an all guns blazing rock 'n' roll offering, this three-song excursion maintains the fact that real rock still lives and breathes in the city that never sleeps.
