The Cynics - Blue Train Station ( Get Hip 1986 )








Pittsburgh Finest The Cynics In Their Outstanding Original Garage Punk Debut, Blue Train Station On Get Hip Records!!!
You'll have to excuse Cynics founder/guitarist Gregg Kostelich if he takes a somewhat, um, cynical view of the current garage-rock boom. After all, the Cynics have been keeping the garage torch burning since 1983, when they formed in Pittsburgh. As with other kindred spirits from that time (the Lyres and the Chesterfield Kings spring to mind), the Cynics, God bless them, place a premium on staying true to the sound and vibe of their fave '60s rockers. The echo of the Chocolate Watchband, the Sonics, the Standells, and others -- whose legacies live on in Little Steven's syndicated Underground Garage radio show and on Rhino Records' 1998 and 2001 Nuggets boxed sets -- comes through like a rude blast of fuzz-tone guitar.
The Cynics' first album was 1986's ripsnorting Blue Train Station, which was followed by Twelve Flights Up, Rock 'N' Roll, Learn to Lose, and Get Our Way (a new CD, Living Is the Best Revenge, is due Nov. 1); all are regarded by connoisseurs as the real deal: gnarly, sweaty, raucous, and brimming with snotty attitude (courtesy of singer Michael Kastelic).

Howdy... Bit surprised no one's noted, but seems only to be title track in the file. Possible to post the whole album?
