HAVERCHUCKS, THE: Self-titled: Cassette

May 01, 2012

Catchy Ramones-core pop punk from the capitol of the Confederacy (aka Richmond)! My Internet sleuthing tells me these guys have released a record or two since putting out this demo tape, but this is still well worth checking out. Five songs of three-chord pop punk. Nothing fancy, and that’s the way it should be! Sample lyric, “Jimmy says he’ll skip the show/He’s got his headphones/Jimmy put on ‘Ill at Ease’/’Cause he likes The Methadones/Jimmy eats pizza every night/Under the TV light” and so on and so forth! I feel like I’m contractually obligated (as a pizza-eating, pop punk dork) to like this! Fortunately, I DO like this! And so should you! If this were the year 1996, this band would definitely have a seven-inch on Mutant Pop! And if this were a cereal, it’d be Honey Nut Cheerios—take the basic three-chord Cheerio structure, add sugary melodies, and enjoy!
