MILLION DOLLAR MARXISTS: Do You Wanna Evolve?: 7”

Highly reminiscent of late ‘90s band All Systems Go, with a touch of the Knockout Pills thrown in (I ain’t got internet at my apartment, so who knows, MDM might be older than both of those bands), the title track has the fantastic line, “Do you wanna walk?/No, I wanna crawl,” repeated throughout the chorus. They get all sophisticated with their guitar solos, incorporating a wah-wah pedal (?!?!) and whipping off lots of notes. There’s enough of a pop sensibility and the songs are played at a decent enough clip to keep me interested.
