NARCOLEPTIC YOUTH: Barbi in Bondage: 7” EP

Okay, no bullshit, “Barbi in Bondage” is easily one of the greatest punk songs of the past ten years, if not of all time—obnoxious, raw, rude, and funny. The remaining tracks on this reissue—“Mini-Van Soccer Mom,” “My Neighbor Hates Me” and a version of the Ramones’ “Havana Affair” are just as swell, which means that if you manage to get your grubby little paws on one of these (only 1,000 of ’em making the rounds, of those only 500 on colored vinyl), it’ll be well worth the effort and the money you spent to acquire a copy. Bless the good Doctor for having the sense to put this back in circulation.
