    Rough Edges CD

    The Guana Batz third studio album Rough Edges was originally released in 1988 and is thought by many fans to be their best ever release.

    Review by Frederick Turgis-Jumping From 6 to 6

    After the more pop oriented Loan Sharks, the Guana Batz returned to the classic sound of their first album. The band abandonned the sax and the keyboards and the covers come from the catalogue of Buddy Holly, Elvis and Baker Knight. In terms of cohesion, recording and songwriting, Rough Edges (which is by no means rough) is their absolute best album showing an accomplished band at the peak of its creativity that benefits of clean (but NOT polished) production. The band offers a solid mix of Psychobilly (Streetwise, Fight Back), wild Neo-Rockabilly (Love Generator, Open Your Mouth), Instrumental (Spy Catcher) and even an excellent jazzy number (Two Shadows). You won't find any filler here and even the construction of the album is perfect.  If Held Down At Last was the revelation of a great band to a wide audience and Loan Sharks showed a band avid to explore new territories, Rough Edges was simply the album of a band in full mastery of its art.
