DILLINGER FOUR: Situationist Comedy: CD

Feb 18, 2009

Holy shit! I cannot possibly write a review that would do justice to this album. The Dillinger Four have been my favorite band for such a long time. The soundtrack and inspiration to so many crazy middle of the night bike rides, drunken porch sitting, zine writing, protesting, kissing, feeling depressed, feeling ecstatic… Whereas I havta sit in my room and listen to the Replacements or the Clash and dream of an era I know so little about, I have seen D4 dozens of times, singing along until I’m hoarse. If you don’t run out and buy this album (possibly their best yet), you’re gonna be kicking yourself like a teenager in 1976 NYC who never got around to checkin’ out the Ramones. What can I say? If you can’t feel passionately about the music you listen to, you’re either a detached hipster asshole or need to listen to something else. I fucking love the Dillinger Four! If this were a cereal, it’d be Lucky Charms!
