LAGWAGON: Trashed: CD

If you like Lagwagon, you should get this. It’s a reissue of the band’s second album. The insert has a collage of photos on one side, with lyrics on the other. There are thirteen bonus tracks included, most of which are demo versions of the songs on the original release. A couple songs worth mentioning are the instrumental track, “Jazzy Jeff”, and an acoustic version of “Whipping Boy.” Most of the demo versions are previously unreleased, including “Path of Least Resistance,” which is the original incarnation of the “Stokin’ the Neighbors” music. It was recorded in 1988 by Chemikil, which featured Joey Cape on vocals and guitar. Who says it’s 2012? This reissue definitely brings you back to 1994.
