(Smog Veil Records) One would expect a collaboration between ‘70s punk giants Sylvain Sylvain and Cheetah Chrome to be pretty spectacular, and certainly these songs beat the bejesus out of the last New York Dolls album.  Two spirited instrumentals and two tough old school antisocial diatribes make for a pretty nice mix. The Batman show reference in their name doesn’t seem to be a promise of campiness (any more than par for the Sylvain course) as much as a commitment to as much 60s trash as 70s trash.  I hope this hits, because I’d love to hear a whole album.
