Alley Cats

CHECK LIST **** Great Balls of Fire *** Good Vibrations ** Maybe Baby * Running on Empty

***ROCK CITY ANGELS. "Young Man's Blues." Geffen. This young band has pulled off a solid, 16-song, hourlong debut. The L.A. group explores the time-worn area of Stones-style street rock, but does it with freshness and depth. They wear chips on their shoulders and their hearts on their sleeves--and they aren't afraid to reveal either one. At times, the slick production threatens to minimize the intensity of the songs, but singer Bobby Durango's gritty, sensual vocals always bring the mood back to the alleys, which is where this kind of music sounds best.
