This is a submitted demo from a garage punk band hailing from Boston, if the bandcamp tag is honest. The Roaches are very lo-fi and therefore akin to most of the garage rock I've been throwing up on the blog as of late. The demo EP they've just put up for free download can be described in all those wonderfully overused terms of fuzzed, loud and fast. Anyhow, what is great about getting the demos of a band that has the potential to crank out some really solid albums, which I am optimistic that The Roaches are capable of, is the sense of being in at the ground floor. Thus tracing the evolution of sound and quality is more accessible. The Live Forever demo might not fully sell these guys to you, but it is just wetting the appetite. So no pressure Roaches, but I'm looking forward to more.
