GOOD MEN DIE LIKE DOGS: Self-titled: 10”

Scrappy pop punk that fits in well with the second wave of Lookout! bands, like pre-MTV Green Day and Rancid. What sets this apart from all the other coffee, hitchhiking and dumpster romance bands is the lyrics, which tell little stories. It’s like listening to your favorite zine. Eight songs. Black and white cookie-colored vinyl.
