These Texas power pop punks may describe their music as "Steve Martin meets Cheap Trick on Speed," and they may have adapted stage names like Erik Rodham Clinton and Gary Wiseass (bass and drums, respectively). Still, despite the occasional in-your-face anomaly, like the very funny "Bitch," they're actually no more of a goof than, say, Green Day. The songwriting here is sharp, and, surprisingly, their cover of Bryan Adams' "Summer of '69" is done straight--apparently they simply liked the song. Or perhaps they just appreciate the irony in singing a nostalgic song written by a man who didn't fully experience the period he was writing about. Adams, after all, was only 10 in the summer of '69, wheareas these guys weren't even born yet, in which case their version is in a weird way actually more honest. Feel free to sort this out at your leisure.
