TEENAGE GLUESNIFFERS: Nervous Breakdown: CD

The fact that their name comes from a Queers song pretty much says it all: Ramonesy pop punk stuff with song titles like “I Wanna Be a Pyro” and “Losers Parade.” Its saving grace is that the songs are stronger than the average band of punters strip mining an already barren genre, and the Italian accent on the vocals gives ‘em a nice twist. Can’t call myself a fan, but they aren’t horrible, I’ll give ‘em that.  –jimmy (myspace.com/mindrotrecords)
