THE PRESS RELEASE: “Sonny Vincent, known as the founding member of NYC punk heroes Testors, has unearthed a collection of never-before heard recordings from his proto-punk days. Compiling unreleased tracks from Distance (1969-71), Fury (1972), and Liquid Diamonds (1973-75), as well as one of the earliest Testors demos from 1976, this LP collection shines a light on one of New York City’s darkest corners of punk history.”
MY TWO CENTS: For a guy best known as an OG NYC punk, Vincent sure sounds a lot like Jimi Hendrix on some of these cuts from his early bands. Hey, we all have to start somewhere. Only difference is, most folks don’t start off with as much talent and skill as Vincent. Crank this up and hear for yourself.
