Album Review
Reviewed 2008-11-16
Very melodic and at times very silly sounding retro punk. Simple three chord guitar driven melodies, guy singing abut how modern society sucks, 4/4 rhythm, “aah-aah” female backing vocals, you get the idea. Seems to draw inspiration from old-school rock and roll and Johnny Thunders. Good music for any sunny day. All songs sound pretty similar. Play with New York Dolls, Buzzcocks, the Ramones, the Clash, Sex Pistols.

Picks: 1,7,10,11 *** No FCCs detected ***

*1. rhythm section opening, very clash sounding, the single
2. melodic punk anthem about how city life sucks
3. rock and roll swagger in this one
4. more straight up rock and roll
5. slower tempo, still very poppy and silly
6. punkier, uptempo
*7. short, fast, energetic punk anthem
8. another old school ramones sounding one
9. plucking guitar intro, another pop anthem...
*10. ah, a bite less sunny-day sounding...
*11. nice little poppy guitar riff and solo, upbeat
