BEER & CABLE: Self-titled : 7” EP

Jul 06, 2011

Concept records, let alone concept bands, are hard to pull off without looking like a ninny or ending up with something, oh, less than stellar. That said, these guys manage to pull both off and come out the other end relatively unscathed. They’re essentially a hardcore band whose interests here are limited solely to the pursuits referenced in their name, and there is no shortage of discussion here of either. This could’ve been one big stupid mess, but they’re luckily blessed with solid tunes and they deliver ‘em with skill. Will this change the world and bring peace to all nations? Probably not, but I can totally get behind the sentiments expressed in “Some People Don’t Deserve Cable.”
