RIPTIDES, THE: Hang Out: CD

I really like this CD. Clever lyrics, cool back-up vocals without all the overkill some other bands employ, and just catchy songs overall. “Bonehead” sports a fantastic opening verse: “with your blood red cocaine nosejob/and a big fat check from your Mom/whatever, whenever/your life, I’ll just watch it from the stands/my little backseat bombshell.” They guys are from Canada, but even if they weren’t, I bet they all party harder than the guys in Rush
