1-800-BAND: High Beams: LP

Okay, deducting points for the worst band name ever. Ever. There is an ‘80s radio stench to this music: Rick Springfield, The Cars, Loverboy. It reminds me of a red plastic Solo cups, cop cars on the front lawn, someone took a shit in the pool, “Hurry up and clean because my parents are on their way home!” high school party. I might invite the 1-800-Band to a party like that. I bet they like to party like that. –Jon Mule (Almost Ready, almostreadyrecords.com)
