TOUCHERS: The Underwater Fascist: CD

This is surprisingly pleasant; it’s kinda country-ish, punkish alt-rock. That sounds like it should be horrible, doesn’t it? But no, only in a remote place like Bozeman, MT would you be able to find people who could do it legitimately and without irony. At times, it gets a little psychobilly and sometimes a bit Neil Young-ish, and as much as I wanna talk shit and hate this, it’s pretty good. I think the reason I can’t help but like it is because it’s so honest. The dudes in this band are playing exactly what they want to play, without giving a fuck what anyone else thinks, and really, what more can anyone expect out of a band besides honesty?
