Punk tinged rock with Renny Wilson Punk Explosion and A Trozzo

Saturday night was a good night for punk tinged rock and roll music, Jan. 7. As often happens at the Slice, the show started late, so I arrived just as A Trozzo and the Electric few, this time trimmed down to the trio of vocalist/ guitarist Aaron Trozzo, EvaAaron Trozzo of A Trozzo and the Electric Few at the Slice, jan. 7.

They played a solid set of big riffs and rock and roll attitude with a touch of David Bowie, that was a lot of fun as always.

 I enjoyed a song I think was called “ Go For A Ride” which wound down their intense set.

 The Renny Wilson Punk explosion, not the Montreal punk trio, Punk Explosion, but the eclectic Calgary/Edmonton  based collective featuring frontman/ guitarist Renny Wilson, two bassists including Martine Menard plus Clayton Smith playing drums.

Their feedback drenched set  showcased Wilson’s shrieking adenoidal vocals  which sounded like the bastard child of Budgie and the Dickies. Their music was loud, noisy and  a lot of fun.
 Wilson broke a guitar string early on in his set, and kept playing without giving it much of a thought, letting it dangle from his guitar’s head.

 They wound up their tight set with a menacing cover of Foreigner’s “Jukebox Hero.”
