Bare Wires

While San Francisco gets all the attention for being the hotbed of West Coast rock and roll, one need only make a short trip (not during rush hour) across the Bay Bridge to find bands that are equally as rock and roll, and just as druggy and fun. Oakland's Bare Wires don't play the noize card like Ty Segall and Thee Oh Sees; instead they crank out smooth, power-glam anthems that bring to mind Gary Glitter (pre-Asian incarceration) and Slade, whose biggest hit as it happens was "Cum On Feel the Noize." Bare Wires' "Don't Ever Change" is a bona fide anthem in the spirit of 1973. There was probably far less plaid and platform shoes involved in the making of the song, but it's comforting nonetheless.
