I’m not going to pretend that I am particularly knowledgeable in the garage rock genre, but I would like to think that if I heard a good record, I’d know it. And because garage rock these days has been around for so long, with so many similar bands; I approached the 10-year veterans of the scene, The Hentchmen, with caution and doubt. As FormFollowsFunction progressed, I kept expecting to be disappointed, but it just never happened. The Detroit trio (organ/guitar/drums) had already perfected the 60s-garage-punk fusion; they just needed that just-enough-produced album to make their sound accessible to the masses. This is their much over due breakout album. Every song seems as catchy as the one prior, as The Hentchmen stay true to the sound, encompassing everything from the surf rock influence to the incessant guitar solos. I believe that this much traveled band deserves your attention now more than ever. Michael Ardaiolo
