GENERATORS, THE: Last of the Pariahs: LP

Don’t you hate it when your favorite albums aren’t available on vinyl? Dr. Strange is right there with you, and they did the world a favor by finally giving this fantastic release the deluxe LP treatment. Formed from the ashes of the mighty Schleprock in 1997, The Generators define themselves with a false sense of simplicity in their unique take on melodic punk with a slight European pop influence. Last of the Pariahs is neither their newest album nor is it their best known. That doesn’t make it any less essential, and Dr. Strange gets major props for unleashing this much-welcomed new version. –Art Ettinger (Dr. Strange)
