WHAT THE KIDS WANT: Inside Jokes Explained : 7”

Aug 13, 2009

What the fuck DO kids want these days? Records with whiny girl vocals and goofy bass lines? How the hell would I know? I’m probably old enough to be the singer’s father. Gotta give ‘em credit though. “Fast and Reckless” is a cute song about delivering pizza, which I do know something about. The band has that naïve-but-full-of-beans attitude which is alternately endearing and nerve wracking. Their lefty sentiments are encouraging but a little more rage and a little less pep would go a long way.
