SPEARS, THE: Shove: CD

Nov 24, 2009

At first listen, this music sounded like the last two-and-a-half decades never occurred as this CD blasted with seamless, slamming punk rock in the vein of Minor Threat. Then, as I went to read the lyrics, I found something even more impressive on the back of the liner notes. There were ten business and/or corporation logos at the bottom of the page. Everyone needs to make money—and free gear would be a gift from heaven for most bands—but ten logos? That’s an endorsement and a half for each of the four band members. The last two-and-a-half decades did occur and it looks like business is booming for bands that sound like Minor Threat.

 –N.L. Dewart (Jailhouse)
