sound like the soundtrack to some drunken debauchery. Crusty guitars, bucket'o vocals and loose beats power the outfit's grimy rock 'n' roll, which actually has a bit of an anthemic swagger to it. The songs on their latest release, Helter Swelter
, aren't the tightest around but make up for it with rambunctious energy that is nicely captured in the low quality recordings. "Party Time 2004" starts with a wild rant before launching into the chunky rhythm and fat riffs, while "Point Break" is a bit of a bouncier number with that's covered with warbling, drunken yells. And while I can't tell if Wet Heat's general attitude is "Wanna Party" or "Wanna Fight," does it really matter? LISTEN: “Party Time 2004”
