One of the many ginchy things about CMJ is that bands often plan their tours around the fest. And if they’re coming from way out somewhere and don’t have the dough to run around America for weeks, they might just play a few east coast dates and hope for the best. And for those of you coming to town for CMJ, that means you can catch a band that most probably won’t make it to your hometown anytime soon.
Witness the absolute raging riff-kickers, Reptiles, as they come over from Melbourne, Australia, get in, get out, and probably somebody gets hurt. They slather graveyard goo over classic Aussie stomp, like a bad mood Celibate Rifles coffee-jagging through the Cramps catalog. Check out their street-crawling clip for Quincy below, and peep over their NYC gig dates too.
