En route back to the salt mines this morning, the Fates of Music bestowed upon me the following in random fashion: Anthrax with Public Enemy, Iron Maiden, Catherine Wheel, Staind, The Bravery, Julian Cope, The Suicide Machines, Jane’s Addiction, Miss Geo and the Metrics, Almost Astronauts, High Ceilings and this band…Clap Your Hands and Say Yeah.
My morning drive today came courtesy of a “care” package that we recently received from our friends at Stomp Records. I had recently conversed with Stomp’s Mike Magee over email and mentioned that we really liked what they were doing and would love to hear from them. Bang! The package arrived yesterday and I could hardly wait to pop the disks in the CD player.
Started with the punk-polka (that’s right, I said polka) of The Dreadnoughts, next came the reggae/dub sounds of The Aggrolites, followed by Third-wave ska/punk of The Creepshow and The Resignators and washed it all down with the rockabilly/punk stylings of The Brains. My life will never be the same again.
