BOYS CLUB: 2-D World: 7″

Yay! This record could have come out in the heyday of the Flakes, the Fevers, and other bands that start with F! And the guy who produced it, Brian Hermosillo, was in the Fevers, the Retardos (SuperTeem is go!), and even the long-forgotten Donny Denim! I mean, it’s hard for me to even be objective about this! Which is fine, because I DON’T have to be objective about this! Oh, um. What does it sound like? A fair question, indeed! It sounds like one cup Rip Offs, two teaspoons Flakes, and four tablespoons Fevers! In other words, garage punk of the best variety! It’s more in the straightforward Rip Offs camp, and less in the crazy buri buri Brentwoods camp, but now I’m splitting hairs! If this were a cereal, it’d be Donkey Kong, Jr. cereal! Yes, the successor to Donkey Kong Crunch! Like Froot Loops, but more ridiculous! Yum!
