The Nice Boys mp3, album and tour

The Nice Boys, out of Portland, have a new self-titled record out and have a tour kicking off on thursday to support it. No Seattle dates listed as of now on their myspace page.

Spin Magazine said they
"…infuse Nick Lowe's infectious pub-rock songcraft with the charmingly sloppy abandon of the Faces."

I've not heard enough of the record to confirm or deny those comparisons. But, the song "Johnny Guitar" certainly has a 1970s glam rock feel to it (as does the album cover -- see below). Actually, after listening more, this track has sort of a Bay City Rollers meets the Ramones vibe.
