K-Holes, Call of the Wild, Nones Early Warnings (Music) Recommended Soundboard

When: Fri., Feb. 8, 9:30 p.m. 2013

Last year Allison Busch did a short online interview for Modern Drummer where she admits that she’s been spoiled because she’s always been able to play in bands with good friends—formerly in Awesome Color, now in Brooklyn trio Call of the Wild. And you don’t even have to get three songs into her current group’s 2012 full-length, Leave Your Leather On (Kemado), to tell that they’re having the best time ever. With their pileup of cracked-out Ron Asheton riffing, growling Lemmy vocals, and cock-rock bravado—not to mention album opener “Autobahn” whose simple guitar lead and bouncy, repetitive chorus are reminiscent of Screeching Weasel—Call of the Wild clearly don’t give a damn how you try to pigeonhole them. Raw and sweaty, their music is the kind of cut-loose rock ’n’ roll that makes even the corniest, most overblown lyrics (“Take it or leave it / Win or lose / This is the life we choose”) sound like the purest poetry ever yelled into a microphone. —Kevin Warwick The K-Holes headline; Call of the Wild and Nones open.
