50 MILLION: 3-14-05: CDEP

You know what? This CD is too short. Starts off with two songs that sound like Steve from Onion Flavored Rings playing ‘60s bubblegum stuff with Hickey (I think there’s actually a Hickey connection to this band), and it fucking rules. ‘60s bubblegum is fine on its own, but 50 Million makes it nice and dirty, and—amazingly enough—they make it rock. Then there’s a one song detour into full-on Hickey bumming-out-the-squares punk rock and then a cover of the ‘60s bubblegum band the La’s. And that’s it. Just four songs. Dear 50 Million: please do more stuff. Thank you.
