FEAR OF LIPSTICK: Indie Band: 7”

Mar 17, 2008

See Rev. Nørb’s review in the previous issue for the best review possible of this band. For those of you without that ready reference, this is your standard punk rock with a picture of pink lipstick on the cover. I can’t help but reference the same bad lyrics Nørb did, “Your college boy brand of rock is doing mighty well for you and that’s just fine/You’re packing your shows, making more than a dime.” Yikes. One of the songs sorta (?) sounds like one of the lesser late-period Green Day songs, oddly enough. One of the members is wearing a Teenage Bottlerocket shirt in the insert, which is interesting and all, but this is mediocre stuff. If this were a cereal, it’d be Cheerios. Standard stuff.
