(Rob's House Records)
Customers' debut 7-inch is a three-song single that finds former Beat Beat Beat guitarist Stephen Hutton moving beyond the sneer of bullet-belt punk songs into a more personalized sound. The group gathers refugees from defunct Atlanta punk bands Carbonas and Heart Attacks to craft razor-sharp, though thoroughly damaged, pop melodies greater than the sum of their parts. "Howling at the Moon" and "Monster on the Loose" move quickly and smoothly by design, and "She's Heroin" cuts with sneering, Johnny Thunders-style solos that remain tastefully restrained. Each song leans toward the loud/fast rock and roll of the Replacements, circa Sorry Ma, Forgot to Take Out the Trash, but it's hardly a dominant trait. These songs are infectious, cathartic and absolutely hell-bound. 4 out of 5 stars
