JAKE AND THE STIFFS: If It Ain’t Stiff…It Ain’t Worth a Fuck: CDEP

Very mediocre pop punk by this trio. It’s very simple and repetitive. It’s got somewhat whiney/snotty vocals but not too rough. Their poppy sound sounds a little garagey (if that’s a word), too. They also do too many cover songs, none of which are worth mentioning with one exception, The Ejected’s “Gonna Get a Gun.” This track is easily the best on the CD. This CD is supposed to have a movie but it doesn’t work on my piece of shit computer. Don’t bother spending your money on this one. It should go to something better like Toby’s trying-to-buy-a-new-computer fund.
