SHORT ATTENTION: Clever, Maddening, Annoying: 7"

Jul 24, 2007

A novelty? Maybe. Novel? Definitely. Short Attention is a pop punk super group that plays extremely short, yet surprisingly catchy, songs. On this 7” there are twenty-six originals, two Chixdiggit covers and a Velvet Underground adaptation. It contains members of the Ergs!, the Unlovables, Dirt Bike Annie, Slaughterhouse Four, and the Steinways. This is the record you go for when you can’t decide which song to put next on the mix tape. There are so many different songs with different topics and levels of seriousness you’re bound to find one that fits. I even have a sneaking suspicion that’s what they were going for, too. If you are fanatical about any of these members’ other bands, you need this. If you are just a fan, this would be fun to have. And if you don’t really care about pop punk, then just keep on doin’ what you’re doin’, you silly bastard.
