GUN CRAZY / TEEN COOL: Split: 7″

If, as I want to think, Gun Crazy is writing dull, monotonous rock songs in order to merge style and content, to show that working class life can be dull and monotonous, then they are geniuses. I want to think, for example, there’s a higher purpose behind singing the line “Talk to Jane” twenty-four times, which is quite dull and monotonous, in the song of the same name. This might be wishful thinking on my part. Teen Cool, not quite so dull and monotonous, sound like lesser Social Distortion, like songs The Heartdrops would have weeded out of their set list after a show or two.
