BOB BURNS AND THE BREAKUPS: Self-titled: 7”

Feb 15, 2007

I’m thankful that great rock’n’roll has nothing to do with quantum physics; that one doesn’t need any sort of degree to understand a sonic karate chop to the throat. I’m thankful that great rock’n’roll has more in common with Tic Tac Toe than chess; more to do with heart than head. I’m thankful that tubas and cellos are really difficult to fit into vans; it keeps the elements—guitar, bass, drum(s)—simple. And I’m thankful for Bob Burns And The Breakups for understanding that to rock, all you need is a wicked beat, something to slash, and the power and energy to stomp it all down. No-frills, back-to-breaking-bones-and-hearts rock’n’roll will always find a place in my collection. Go, Wisconsin.
