A Review by:
– The Dude on the Right
Here’s a band that pretty much says you can write a song about anything. The hits off this CD were the catchy “Lump” and “Peaches,” but those aren’t the songs that really highlight my first sentence, I mean, you get songs about a “Kitty,” a “Boll Weevil,” a “Dune Buggy,” the man on the “Back Porch,” and being “Naked and Famous.” Punchy lyrics with a sound mixing punk and grunge all at the same time, you get, what they call, “two-string basiter” from Chris Ballew, “three-string guitbass” from Dave Dederer, and “no-string drum” from Jason Finn. That pretty much should tell you that intricate musical numbers are not to be found here, but if you’re looking for a rockin’ good time, you can’t go too wrong with these Presidents.
Entertaining, this one hits 75% on the Entertainment Ave! listenability scale.
That’s it for this quick review! I’m The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!
