MAKEOUT PARTY!, THEE: Play Pretend: Cassette

Mar 03, 2009

My first experience with Thee Makeout Party! was happening to see them live a few years ago. Admittedly I was soured, but mainly because I’d gone out to see The Trashies, and had to leave before they played. Then I saw them again this past summer, and realized “Man, these guys are a pretty fuckin’ awesome power pop band”. I’m still not too familiar, but I’m pretty sure this is just a straight re-issue of their latest full length on cassette, with hand-color, penciled art, and individually numbered, which if you’re going to do a tape, is how you should do it. Nice.
