Bob Paulos and his arsenal of guitar tones forged Give Me Static’s assault on Asbury’s premier 10-pin penthouse and music locale on Thursday evening as the Long Branch-based Noise-Punk collective left a humble assemblage in a state of blissful catatonia, like some sort of bewitching Rock N’ Roll spectacle shipped to the future from an early ’90s logging community in the great American Northwest, axes blazing, bass cannons on full blast (Nick Bock), launching smart bombs from the drum throne (Brad Harrison), injecting a shot of adrenaline into a stagnating genre and a dose of adrenachrome into the minds of listeners with such tunes as the round riffed “Regret” and the singed and spacious “Siren Song.”

The rugged blue-collar Rock N’ Roller with a Telecaster six-string strapped to his back; it’s no strange site to these boardwalk haunts, and yet, Joe Wilson, with his new band The Loose Ends, works with palette that pays homage to The Boss, as well as Tom Petty, and Bob Seger,  is not the facsimile of Bruce Springsteen that John Cafferty once attempted to be with “On The Dark Side,” but a new torch bearer, paying homage to this town’s past with a fresh Pop-Rock spin.
