TIM VERSION, THE: Prohibition Starts Tomorrow: CD

This band broke the long-standing, previously foolproof “You Can’t Rock in Flip-Flops” rule. You may be saying nay to such blasphemy, but believe me, even when they’re wearing flip-flops, they rock like motherfuckers. The Tim Version is the perfect antidote to hipster crap like Le Tigre. They might not ever be popular, hell, they might not even play to more than fifty people, but I get the feeling that they wouldn’t have it any other way. And not only are they Dudes Gone Wild during the live rock, but the lead singer knows a whole lot about lasers, and that’s pretty awesome.
