I usually don't gravitate anywhere near a record with an "olides" or "swing" bent regardless of how conservatively those m.o.'s might be employed, but I suppose I'll make an exception for this one. Incognito Rockers were a lively co-ed six-piece, presumably from southern Cali, who dish out a couple beauts on here that are precisely in said vein. "Kiss It" is a risque throwback that's one milkshake short of a sock hop. "Just As Much Charm" is another malt shop slammer, doubly as catchy as the aforementioned. Elsewhere, "Cat and Mouse"is a Blondie-ish snyth rocker that would have also fit nicely on one of X's mid-80s platters. Some intermittent saxophone is fittingly wielded on this record, adding that much more to the fun quotient. This one's damn near a blast.
