PRETTYBOY THORSON & THE FALLING ANGELS: Ain’t It Funny: CD

This is that drunken kind of pop punk that was made famous in the Bay Area. It’s all about breaking up with girls and drinking about it, along with a few references to punk activities like being broke and sleeping on couches. This is the kind of band that every town has one of and they always have a huge local following. They’re a good band. Hell, if I were to start my first band, it might sound like this and hopefully we’d be good too. But, for me personally, in this over-accelerated, over-stimulated culture, I don’t get into bands on the basis of them being good, but on whether they stand out or not. Unfortunately, this band doesn’t do that for me.
