"Discography" CD (Paco Garden)

Pop-punk as it was done back in the day. Every song sounds like a cranked-up cover of a particularly snotty Grimple or Screeching Weasel song; as I listen to them, all I really hear is Ben Weasel screaming. This takes me back to the early 1990s, cops shutting down house parties, bar shows that only lasted until the bar owner started screaming at the band to get out ... in 1991, this probably would have been on Allied and I would have been in love. As it is, it's a nice reminder of cramming 50 people into a show space built for 20 and then fitting a band into the room to play 15 songs in 10 minutes. Sometimes, nostalgia ain't so bad.
