Taking a 'Good Look' at the Fleshtones

Some call them garage-rockers, but the Fleshtones, who actually got their start in a Queens basement, don't stop there. They add in overtones of R&B, rockabilly and even surf to create a sound they like to call "Super Rock."

Fresh Air's rock critic takes a good look at the band's latest album, Take a Good Look.
