LILLINGTONS, THE: Technically Unsound: 3 x CD

How did I miss these young roughnecks from Wyoming in 1996? What the hell was I doing back then? Nothing worthwhile is the answer. But I have time to make up for my past sins. First stop, buying this kick ass box set. Three CDs that include the Shit Out Of Luck LP in its original form and a 2003 remix. The Nothing Cool split LP, the Lost My Marbles 7”, the previously unreleased Stupid World EP. Plus a ton of live material from The Jam Room in Columbia, SC. Wow—this is thick. “I Don’t Think She Cares,” “Smart Ass,” “Reform School,” “The Day I Went Away.” I could go but this issue would run out of paper. If you like punk with a pop edge like he Ramones, The Dickies, The Zeros and others in that vernacular, then you need this like a bowl of Cap’n Crunch in the morning. This is E-E-E-SENTIAL. You may go now.
