My first thoughts when the Providence, RI music scene is mentioned turn to Load Records (and White Load!), Fort Thunder and Dropdead. All of the varieties of noise/aggro/art accompanying those names makes a garage-pop band like Atlantic Thrills seem like an anomaly in that town. "A Day at the Beach" has the Thrills sounding like the band-for-hire playing amidst a throng of Gidgets and Moondoggies in some Sixties beach party flick, except with booze and joints being passed around instead of beachballs and sodas. Handclaps, the twangiest of guitar sounds, smooth vocal harmonies, and a chorus hooky enough to get any bikini wearing babe shimmying in an instant. This doesn't even sound like the East Coast in general, much less Providence, but could be the tune that gets Almost Ready a breakthrough hit if the dice roll in their favor. As far as garage-pop songs go, you won't hear much better. The flipside shows the fellas as a bit of a hairier bunch. Still a good time though, perhaps sounding like a clean cut Black Lips obsessed with Norton Records and surf comps instead of Crypt Records and Back from the Grave. Scum stats: there was a limited tour edition for the recent East Coast jaunt with photocopied sleeves, artwork by Avi Spivak of Human Being Lawnmower fame.(RK)
