LOUIS TULLY: 7”

Keyboards certainly have their place in punk rock. From the Screamers to the Spits, the significance of the keyboard must be acknowledged. However, for the most part, I’m not a big fan of keyboards in punk songs. Louis Tully is a good example of why. They play pretty decent Dag Nasty-ish anthemic punk, but with this fucking irritating keyboard that just totally sounds out of place and jars the songs apart like a paint scraper. If this band didn’t have a keyboard, they’d be great, but they do, so they aren’t.
