TEENAGE BOTTLEROCKET: They Came from the Shadows: CD

Open up the insert of this CD to the middle, and prop it up so you can see the picture of the band clearly. Put on “Bigger Than Kiss” and be prepared to laugh your ass off. Dig deeper though, and you will hear more great songs about love lost, everyday problems that most of us go through at one time or another, and just life in general beating you down. But I triple dog dare you to listen to this record and not have a smile on your face by the end of it. “Call In Sick” will be the new anthem for unmotivated employees across America. And probably everyone has met someone like “The Jerk” before. Another quality release from these Wyoming roughnecks. Yee-ha!  –koepenick (Fat Wreck Chords)
