GOOD TIMES CRISIS BAND: Select a Gather Point: CD

Sounds like ‘70s rock as played by a bloodless UK postpunk unit like Wire or Gang Of Four, but from Austin, meaning that they actually sound like a version of Wire or Gang Of Four that you could sit down and have a beer with, and was recorded somewhere wooden and humid. This kinda seems like the type of thing where if it was your friend’s band, you’d listen to the CD and pick out a few interesting things about it that you could tell them that you enjoyed about the record, even though you wouldn’t have bought it or listened to it if it wasn’t your friend’s band—WHICH JUST GOES TO SHOW US ALL THAT THERE ARE NO STRANGERS IN PUNK ROCK, JUST FRIENDS WE HAVEN’T MET, AMEN. I think i saw that on a plaque behind a bar in Howard, Wisconsin once. BEST SONG: “Nose and Chin” BEST SONG TITLE: “Z.Z.Zephyr” FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: Band’s press kit compares them to Gang Of Four, OK Go, Nomeansno and the Knack. Seriously.
