PUT-ONS, THE: self-titled: CD

So, every time I get a record from a So Cal label I haven’t heard of, I think, “This must be on some weird major label subsidiary.” I did some investigating and couldn’t find that information, but I did discover that the web-page for Manic Records has an ad and a link to everyone’s favorite store, Hot Topic. Apparently, they also do a magazine called Manic. I couldn’t read it online, but I did see plenty of photos of pro skater boys and girls in halter tops. Lame. Musically, this is pretty standard nineties type power pop. Nothing special here. Oh well. If this was a cereal, it’d be Unfrosted Mini-Wheats. Yawn.
