Maybe it’s the font they used (which is similar to the one Fear uses), but I swear this band was called Fears. Pears are exactly what you expect from Fat Wreck Chords: fast, melodic, pop punk. Although I’m not hearing any reinvention to that genre, these guys play it really fast and play it well. All the songs clock in at the two-minute mark with a great muggy-sounding version of the Ramones’ “Judy Is a Punk” on there.
