CONNIE DUNGS, THE: I Hate This Town!: 7″

Yay! Yay! Yay! This is one of the best 7”s of all time! This is so good that not even my traditional overuse of exclamation marks can do it justice! Ack! Ack! Ack! Prose fails me! Since 1996, at least one of these gloriously perfect pop punk songs has magically entered into my brain, unannounced, at a rate of no less than once per month! Plus, it’s brought to you by Mutant Pop, one of the best (the best? Would it win a fight against Superteem?) record labels of all time! This is a reissue of the original 7”, however: POP PUNK NERD ALERT! If you bought the original 7” and, like me, missed the repressing in 1999, you need to buy this again because it contains a bonus song that was supposed to go on the original but, for various reasons, did not! If this were a cereal, it’d be Lucky Charms, the highest honor I can bestow! If you do not own this, you are the gastronomic equivalent of someone who’s never tried pizza!
