SAFES, THE: Boogie Woogie Rumble: CDEP

Sounds like a quarter-century-younger version of the Angelic Upstarts all cracked up on those energy drinks so popular with our nation’s youth singing Undertones songs that aren’t about girls, except for “Mental Wheelchair,” which kind of sounds like it could have come from somewhere in the middle of the second side of the Adolescents first album. If this record gets you on the floor, watch out for your brisket! BEST SONG: “Mind Meltdown” BEST SONG TITLE: “Mind Meltdown” i guess FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: 75% of this band appear to be brethren.
