HOBOCOP: Half Man, Half Cop: LP

I’d put this as a cross between The Barbaras and The Spits. Sound odd? It is a little. But it’s enjoyable. The vocals have that weird “drowning in the sink” sound while the pop sensibilities are a little more on the broken party bus. The cover sticker compares this record to The Screamers. I like it, but it lacks the fascism necessary to be compared to The Screamers. It’s a band with a keyboard, not a keyboard band. I’m not trying to be a dick, but the consumer needs to know. Fans of Hunxisms and San Francisco would be way into this. I like it.
