GADJITS, THE: Today Is My Day: CD

First rule is: The laws of Germany. Second rule is: Never trust a ska band. Third rule is: Never trust a band that has formed within the past two years to play punk rock and roll. Fourth rule is: Never trust a ska band who jumps onto the punk rock and roll bandwagon. That’s really all you havta know about the Gadjits. If you’re one of those trend jumpers, HERE’S YOUR TREND! Bluesy punk rock, complete with retro/emo-y package design. If this were a cereal, it’d be whatever Cap’n Crunch is dishing up this month. (There have been a ridiculous number of different kinds of Cap’n Crunch – and all of them suck.) Can I declare a moratorium on more bands forming that sound like this? If not, please kill me.
