Amoeba Review

Tiffany Anders 11/24/2014

 It’s quite ironic that the title of this forgotten band’s double CD of material that never saw the light of day is Gotta Survive, in part because of the circumstances in which it was buried after producer and label owner Terry Melcher went into hiding after he was rumored to be on Charles Manson’s hit list (which in turn caused the break up of the band). It’s a true shame as the group of young boys from Sacramento display incredible promise on this fantastic release. Public Nuisance is garage rock at its best, edgy punk with a flair of psychedelia, everything that garage rock should be and more. In addition to the fantastic raucous sounds the band created, the lyrical content was also above average, tapping into issues of the war on tracks like “Strawberry Man” and including superb love songs like “7 Or 10.” The band at times has an uncanny resemblance to the vocal style of modern day garage rock lovers The White Stripes. Gotta Survive is a sweet piece of garage rock history and a must-have for garage rock completists.
