Lust-R-Tones 

Friday, September 19, at Benders.

Whereas many garage-sound revivalists take their Stooges fandom to tribute-band proportions, the Lust-R-Tones turn back the clock to an earlier era, focusing on the rock before pop. On its self-titled debut disc, the Kansas City quartet covers its catchy numbers with a thin layer of fuzz. This effect enhances rather than obscures the melodies, which might be a bit too pleasant with polished production. The band could use an organ player to complement the dual-guitar interaction on record (say, what are the Gadjits' former keyboardists doing these days?), but when the sweat starts flying at the live show, it'll be difficult to tell that anything's missing from the mix.
