Audacity, a four-piece from Fullerton, California, are exactly what you want from a garage-punk band: They're loud, they sing and play with no small amount of attitude, and they tear through songs with speed and authority (on their latest album, Butter Knife, they knock out 13 songs in a half-hour). The group may even exhibit some signs of maturity—tracks like "Autumn" and "Company Time" are power-pop gems that would make Alex Chilton green with envy—but the blunted expressions on their faces in recent publicity pictures reveal these gents to be as puckish and youthful as their music.
