DEAD END KIDS: I’m So Bored With the U.K.: CD

Pretty generic ‘70s influenced punk. The promo sheet says they are an “incredibly important band.” What does that even mean? Maybe Paul Robeson or Woody Guthrie or Minor Threat were “incredibly important,” helping create and sustain political culture and build community, but this? This is just music, dumb and fun, the way this kind of music should be. Unfortunately, this just isn’t fun or catchy enough. If this were a cereal, it’d be unfrosted Mini-Wheats. Yawn.
