FIRESTARTER: Saturday Night (Is the End of the World): 7”

May 13, 2011

Two-song 7” featuring two members of the late Teengenerate (and somehow associated with a third member?). Power pop rock’n’roll (heavy on the power) that’s not necessarily hi-fi but nowhere near as blown out as Teengenerate. I like the songs but someone didn’t get the memo that rock’n’roll bands shouldn’t use the phrase “rock ‘n’ roll” in their songs anymore. Seriously, it takes away from the song. I rate it thus in the the Teengenerate-related canon (that I’m aware of): Teengenerate, Firestarter, Raydios. Probably fun live.
