FOAMERS, THE: Self-titled: CD

An English punk band with a lot of the requisite flourishes and trappings one hears from many modern punk bands, but they somehow manage to make them seem less annoying. Even their forays into the otherwise taboo terrain of ska punk don’t seem to elicit the usual gag reflex that occurs. I’m impressed. Can’t believe this is coming out of my, err, fingers, but this is recommended. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to pop off to take a shower now, ‘cause I’m feelin’ a wee bit dirty.
