VARIOUS ARTISTS: Fat Music Vol. VI - Uncontrollable Fatulence: CD

Jul 28, 2009

Do you know the drill? The drill is this is the sixth in the series of the Fat sampler. Duh! Well they get better every time since they are adding more unreleased tracks on these comps. What me, get a Fat comp? I can’t have that in my collection. I will lose major punk points if my friends find out. Me, I don’t care. Lost many a punk point in my day. Besides, I’m getting pretty old and I don’t have a lot of friends anyway. I shouldn’t have to describe what these bands sound like to you. Vanessa at Fat is really good at what she does and is a good person also. You get unreleased tracks from: The Lawrence Arms (good track, like it better than their previous output), Mad Caddies (goofy mariachi, cowpunk for a good time), Lagwagon, Strung Out, Rise Against (I keep forgetting to go out and buy their CD), Swingin’ Utters (I can’t stop hearing Mike Ness and Social Distortion when I listen to these guys), Frenzal Rhomb, Anti-Flag (So good and thought provoking!), NOFX, Wizo (These guys don’t record enough!), and Me First and the Gimme Gimmes (A Prince song originally performed by The Family and then covered by Sinead O’Connor and desecrated by these guys, making it sound like a Billy Joel song). The rest of the comp is rounded off with tracks off of their current releases: Propagandhi, Dillinger Four, No Use for a Name, Avail, Less than Jake, Sick of it All, and Good Riddance. This should be reasonably priced, so use that X-mas money that you might have leftover.
