SLOPPY SECONDS: You Can’t Kill Joey Ramone: 7”

You couldn’t imagine the excitement when I found this slab in my review pack. Not only am I a big Sloppy Seconds fan, but I am a collector of their 7”s. This new one came out under my radar, yet it still made it to me. The A-side is the Sloppy’s ode to one of their main influences. It was a stand out track on their Endless Bummer LP a couple of years ago and it still sounds great here. The graf portrait of Joey on the inside sleeve is pretty damn cool, too. On the flip they do a cover of Anti Nowhere League’s “Can’t Stand Rock ‘n’ Roll,” which is funny because Sloppy Seconds are truly a great rock’n’roll band. They just better not wait another decade to release more records!
