The Curses -- s/t

Garage punk from Boston -- catchy head-bobbin punk/rock n roll plus rowdy lyrics reminiscent of Clash/Stiff LIttle Fingers/Undertones. Lots and lots of energy and songs that vary from rock n roll to straight-ahead punk to ska-punk and even a doo-wop ballad. Great!!
PICS: 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 11, 12 FCC: 8
1. super catchy, punk anthem
2. punk - war machines/nuclear war -- "atomic bomb"
3. midtempo -- swing/ska beat, stop and start periods -great!
4. Ramones-eque riff
5. fast rocker -- love song
6. slower doo-wop punk
7. catchy rock, "i'm a plastic man!"
8. punk, descending riffs, great lyrics, FCC- "shit, fuckin"
9. pounding drums at beginning, fast rocker
10. ska-punk, slow at beginning then speeds up, descending riffs
11. fast punk, snotty lyrics
12. classic punk style -- great!
