NOT TONIGHT AND THE HEADACHES: Love…And Other Weapons of Mass Destruction : CD

May 20, 2014

Who would have thought that a resurgence of pop punk straight from the late 1980s and early 1990s would have its roots in Grimsby, a relatively small town on the east coast of England? This transports me back to a time when the Hard-Ons, Unwritten Law, and Big Drill Car (and much later All Systems Go!) were in their prime and I must also give the band credit for a corking version of Jane Wiedlin’s “Rush Hour.” It’s definitely music for those with, or those seeking, a sunny disposition.
