MUGWUMPS, THE: Do Time with the Mugwumps: 7”

Mar 17, 2008

First question: Is this band’s name a reference to the 1880s anti-Gilded Age Republican political activists of the same name? If so, I salute them! Mid-period Ramones-influenced (in a good way!) punk rock. The press release compares it to Too Tough to Die, and, oddly, for the first time I think I agree with a press release. Good stuff! If this were a cereal, it’d be Trix. Tasty, but not quite up to the level of Cinnamon Toast Crunch (early-period Ramones’ influenced punk could accomplish that!).
