KUNG FOOLS: Self-titled: 7”

Everyone once in a while the review shelf is a treasure trove. I admittedly grabbed it for the guys dressed as the Mummy, Dracula, and Frankenstein on the front. But it power pops! Like the Mummy, the band is now long gone—these are four never released songs from 1995. Joey Ramone vocals over flowing guitars and cymbals, swift Minneapolis coolness. Extra points for the insert—an autographed photo of Baron Von Raschke and the liner notes: “We never believed in nostalgia. Instead, consider it a musical postcard from the Rebel Nation, rescued, at long last, from the dead letter office.”
