Raw Geronimo is a young band out of Los Angeles known for their mesmerizing live shows in southern California. Their sound is an interesting mix of ‘50s and ‘60s surf, ‘60s girl groups, ‘70s glam, with a dash of post-punk. LA Weekly said of the group, “If you remember the B-sides of ‘80s punk comps, where “art” bands like the Nuns, Los Microwaves and Suburban Lawns matched playful technique with a sense of humor and the sheer force of personality, then you’ll recognize Raw Geronimo instantly: new wave in the best and weirdest way.” Raw Geronimo have released a couple of 7-inch singles so far via Neurotic Yell Records with the recent “Roll Play” (below the fold) being the latest. Today we bring you the premiere of a new song “Shot on the Spot” by way of this brand new video directed by Aliethea D’Angelo.
