APERS, THE: The Wild and Savage Apers: Singles and Outtakes 1997-2002: CD

Wow. A European Queers. This band has all the key elements of a total Queers rip-off band, right down to the Joe King-esque vocals. At first, I thought, “This stinks! It’s not original at all!” And then I thought, “Wait a minute! Why can’t we clone the Queers so that Europe and the States can each have one? Punk!” The Apers aren’t anywhere near as good as the Queers, though, but still, their existence prevents free trade from leading to a takeover of the rest of the world by American pop punk bands! The Apers are really a DIY local organic alternative to Lookout Records! Go Europe! If this were a cereal, it’d be European Union Ohs! Am I making sense? No!
