Tony Valentino: Barracuda

Tony Valentino was the guitarist for LA based garage rock band The Standells, one of the progenitors of the catchy punk sound that became all the rage a few years later. Now he is back with a new band reimaginging the band's classic 1966 record Dirty Water. The title track was a huge hit and became an anthem for Boston based sports teams Boston Bruins and the Boston Red Sox. Two new tracks have been added to the original tracklisting, with the rollicking lead single Barracuda serving as taster. Duane Waider is on vocals and drums, and Gary Kaluza plays bass.

Barracuda is released via Big Stir Records.

  1. Wow! Barracuda, what a joyous record! I'm gonna play that to my wife when she gets home and we are going to dance around the living room! Knockout!
    PS I can't think of a better time than now to review my album with the Barracuda on the front? Pretty please, Hans?
