One day towards the end of my high school years, I was over at Larry’s
place, listening to him getting chewed out by his step-dad. At one point
Jim yelled, “Larry, you’re the laziest goddamn kid in the world!”
Having just heard MY step-father say the same thing about me, I had to
chime in, “But Jim, my step-dad says I am.” Believe it or not, it
actually made them both laugh and eased the tension. Anyhow, I really
still am the laziest (old) kid in the world. I’ve had these four CDs
sitting under a pile of stuff on my desk for upwards of six months and I
haven’t done a damn thing with them. So here’s my half-assed (okay,
quarter-assed) attempt at catching up already:
Bouncy, sincere indie rock from former Pistola drummer turned
frontman Patrick Teahan and his new mates.
Pawnshop Masterpiece (Zero
Youth Records) A series of boisterous, testosterone-fueled rants from
ADA JANE- Never
Been Better (PAW
Records) Earnest and (for the most part) talented songwriting from
. At its best, it feels good in a melancholy way.
on Impact (Site)
Arena-esque punk-n-roll with Green Day-like vocals. These guys are from
but (inexplicably) I get an
vibe from this.
I am fuckin’
exhausted from all that deep thought. –Ben Hunter
