You might remember Jeff Hershey from his day in No Motiv, one of the most underrated bands ever. These days he’s still playing music but the rock and soul that he and his Heartbeats dish out is quite different from say, “Celebrate” or “Give Me Strength”.

The 4-song EP “Underground Classics” sees Hershey revisting his punkrock roots as he gives four classics by the likes of Fear, The Misfits, Agent Orange and Ill Repute the Heartbeats treatment. They’re all pretty solid but it’s especially the soulified version of Misfits’ “Some Kinda Hate” that I will be blasting through the speakers for quite some time.
