PHANTOM LIMBS: Applied Ignorance: CD

Wild, psychotic, goth merry-go-round calliope punk. I realize that doesn’t sound like a particularly attractive description, but I dare anyone one of you reading this to listen to this and honestly tell me that it doesn’t sound just like that. It rocks in ways not heard too often since the Screamers called it a day 20 years ago, to boot. If I had the feria, I’d buy and mail copies to every punker in the US who has ever even entertained the idea of starting a band. See, this is how original, creative and flat-out good things can get with a little imagination and a desire not to sound like everyone else. Beyond recommended.
