Ray Paul is the pope of power pop. And the Rochester garage rocker has a new record, "Bloody Rubbish." This album has tracks from a couple different decades, as well as some live tracks. Regardless, "Bloody Rubbish" is bloody rockin' --- like Cheap Trick's "In Color" era, or The Rembrandts. Paul and his crew hold fast to the harmonies as the songs take on a classic Mersey Beat aesthetic. It's neither retro nor redundant. Whether playing a classic from 1977 or a fresh debut, the band is cohesive. It's classic. It's fun, fun, fun.
