turboTurbo Rathvon returned to performing last fall after a long hiatus. The group plays good-time music that brings to mind the Adverts or the Zeros — when punk was morphing into what would come to be known as new wave. By the time all of the pioneering bands had made it big, (Blondie, Talking Heads, etc.) all of the spirit of punk had been refined out of the music and replaced with studio magic. This band captures that choice moment in time just before that happened. Founding members Keith Nelson, Carl Olson, Jordan Curtis and Adam Metzer are joined by new drummer Jack Gerold in this five-piece with the mission to “provide the soundtrack to your personal apocalypse.”
