COBRA SKULLS: American Rubicon: CD

You know how Against Me!, despite all the hype, was really only ever capable of writing five to six good songs per record? The rest of their records would then be filler. The Cobra Skulls sound like a band based on all that filler material. The singer even occasionally sounds like Tom Gabel. I saw them on the Red Scare tour and spent most of the show trying to decide what this one song they played sounded like. I eventually realized it was a dead ringer for the song “Nutrition” by The Dead Milkmen. It had the same melody and everything. So, if poor Tom Gabel impressions mixed with bad Dead Milkmen near-covers are for you, hop on this fast!
