Really good power pop that sounds like it borrows equally across the ‘78 to early ‘80s timeline, and still manages to sound a bit like a Chicago punk band circa Naked Raygun. This includes four studio tracks recorded in March 2005 and three live songs from a June 2005 show. A month after the show, the singer was killed in a bizarre car accident—a girl driving ninety mph plowed into another car stopped at an intersection. She later said it was a suicide attempt. All three people in the other car died. The girl broke her ankle and only served a few years in prison. Note to the suicidal: please do not kill other people while you’re trying to kill yourself. Thanks to Dirtnap for putting this out.
