DEAD CLASS, THE: Stick: CD

This is surfy/circusy-sounding crapola that’s halfway between Dead Kennedys and System Of A Down without the creativity or originality or either band. Sadly, the two best tracks (where the band breaks out of their “wacky” mode and turns in a coupla decent tunes) are buried deep in the middle of the CD, where only a reviewer who is duty-bound to listen to the whole damn thing will find them.
