ORPHAN CHOIR: Self-titled: CD

Jan 13, 2010

If you took a good punk band, added two tablespoons of Bryan Adams, one teaspoon Leatherface, two teaspoons rotting Bruce Springsteen (in a bad way), stirred, and put it in the microwave, this is what you’d get. Slightly gruff lyrics (think, roughly, Against Me), on the poppy end of things. With the lyric, “only the good die young/and we’re no good baby, no damn good.” If this were a cereal, it’d be French Toast Crunch: a mix of bad ideas.
