FAILURES, THE: Working Class Blues: CD

Nov 24, 2009

If you like the second two Rancid LPs, you’ll probably like this. Lots of choruses. Tons of choruses. A Billy Bragg cover. Lots of lyrics about unity, not backing down, and even the following, “As the sun goes down and the temperature drops/the streets come alive with the sounds of punk rock/’cause where we’re from the night belongs to the punks.” Where I’m from, when the temperature drops, punks stay inside and read books, leaving the night open to whoever wants to take it, but then again that’s Minnesota. If this were a cereal, it’d be Cheerios. You pretty much know what you’re getting here.  –maddy (Self-released?)
