FUR COATS, THE: The League of Extraordinary Octopuses: LP

Tight punk pop delivered with a smirk. It’s never funny just to be funny. There’s always something more at work, like on drunken screw-up anthem “Goddamn, I’m a Handsome Man!” or the from-a-turkey’s-perspective “A Thanksgiving Day Murder.” The Fur Coats are from Punk House Heaven, Chicago. Two of them used to be in Das Kapital.
