single and full length by a solid tone-and-wave outfit going by the name of The Kinetics. More recently I happened upon this cassette which I assumed was by the same band. Turns out, the Kinetics I'm presenting today were in fact not one and the same, rather a New Jersey entity all to themselves, with a lineup featuring Dave Schramm and Fred Brockman. Their bag was no-frills, rootsy pop, hearkening as far back as the fifties. Sonically, these fellows weren't entirely removed from say, Buddy Holly, though the Kinetics man on the mic doesn't hold a candle to that bespeckled demigod. "His Eyes" makes the biggest jangle among Nobody Knows half-dozen tracks.
