CD Review: Cheese Borger and the Cleveland Steamers 

Cheese Borger and the Cleveland Steamers (Smog Veil)

smogveil.com

The solo debut from Pink Holes bassist Cheese Borger is an appropriately irreverent and free wheelin' affair that's far poppier than what you'd expect from a guy affiliated with one of Cleveland's most outlandish punk bands. Album highlights include: "Cleveland," a tune with a guitar riff that sounds like something off a Pere Ubu album; "Never Enough," a catchy tune that recalls power pop classics from the '80s; and the ballad "The Apple Tree." The Pagans' Mike Hudson and the Cramps' Nick Knox contribute, turning the album into a homage of sorts to Cleveland's punk rock past. — Jeff Niesel
