SHEMPS, THE: On 45: 7″

With a name like The Shemps, it must be another crappy pop punk band with ten CDRs on Mutant Pop, right? Wrong! Surprise! Surprise! The Shemps are a garage punk band and they rock! Great jump-up-and-down music – catchy, with a nod to The Jam and the Rip Offs, and here we go! This is Cracklin’ Oat Bran! The name makes it sound awful, but it’s so fucking good!
