MODERN MACHINES / IF I HAD A HI FI: Hot Nuggets: CD

Yay! The best and by far the most ridiculous band in Milwaukee (Modern Machines) team up with If I Had A Hi Fi for a CD that is roughly comparable to Cinnamon Toast Crunch! Yes, it’s just that good! They cover each other’s songs, Mission of Burma, random other stuff, and it sounds so good! Modern Machines play music that sounds like a combination of Husker Du, Bruce Springsteen, and the Devil Dogs (yes, strange but true!), and If I Had A Hi Fi plays music that sounds like Milwaukee plus Mission of Burma! My one complaint? The cover of Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner (originally be Warren Zevon) better be a joke.
