WHORE DADDY O’S, THE: Self-titled: CD-R

While I was initially excited to get something from a Wisconsin band I hadn’t heard of (Let’s hear it for Wisconsin pride!), I soon learned that the Whore Daddy-o’s are about as good as their name would indicate. Really mediocre pop punk; at times I think they’re trying to imitate Screeching Weasel, but with little success. This is an example of a band who should have waited to put out a real album, instead of a not-too-exciting CD-R. But hey, they’re from Manitowoc, home of the Manitowoc Maritime Museum, one of the least exciting tourist attractions in the entire United States! This release is most equivalent to Crunch Berries cereal – the sugar makes it pop punk, but that’s where the fun ends. The cereal and the band need a little fine tuning. Ack.
