DUDE JAMES / TOO MANY DAVES: Split: 7”

This split brings it! It’s got the whole, “A spoon full of sugar helps the medicine go down” feel to it. All songs here are the gritty punk pop numbers akin to what’s coming out of ADD Records now, a la Turkish Techno and The Anchor. But underneath all the sweaty, dirty, stubble face anthems is that injection of sugarcoated pop that makes these bands so good. You can’t go wrong with any of the tunes here but Dude Jams’ “Anthemagic” defiantly rears its head to the top with lyrics: “…my mind’s on my magic. And my magic’s on my mind…” It’s just silly, hard-hitting goodness.
