The Stompers

Rock fans who like their music on the cerebral side can just move on to the next bin. A garage band out of Boston, the Stompers rely on a hell-bent-for-good-times approach, summed up in Rock, Jump and Holler and American Fun, two of the tracks from this album, the band's first for a major label. (They've been together for six years; the youngest of the quintet is 27.) Sal Baglio, the guitarist and lead vocalist, writes all the original material. His loose approach goes easy on the neuroses, heavy on the rhythm. The typical Never Tell an Angel (When Your Heart's on Fire) may not be exactly the advice America's youth needs in these troubled times, but it's a kick. (Mercury)
