The vinyl version of this record originally came out in 2005 and has been unavailable for a bit, so to mark the ten year anniversary of its release, the folks at Don Giovanni have re-mastered and re-released this, the debut LP from The Ergs. It’s a move that makes sense, as The Ergs legacy is bigger than ever, despite the fact that they broke up in 2008. The Ergs were a great band—playing out like an updated version of the Descendents with softer edges yet still with the ability to pen a fucking near perfect pop punk song. This LP is a modern classic, jam packed with some truly great songs about girls, love, and… did I mention girls? If you like the less traditionally “punk” Descendents songs about girls, then you’ll love this. But you’ve most likely already had this record for years anyways.
