Hunx – Hairdresser Blues

Not working with His Punx on this one, flamboyant (glamboyant!) garage-rocker Hunx has released his first proper solo record, and it’s a doozy.  Hairdresser Blues is just straight garage-pop hooks from start to finish, right up there with the similarly spirited debut from The Tough Shits or the terrific “Wild Desire” 7” from King Tuff.  There’s no shortage of tongue-in-cheek (pun intended, unfortunately) come-ons like “Private Room” or “Let Me In”, but the record’s dark core reveals itself on a handful of battered-heart ballads that address the emotional fallout of losing loved ones (his dad, Jay Reatard).  No matter what angle Hunx is playing, Hairdresser Blues is a highly enjoyable listen from start to finish.
