Album Review

Artist: Tommy Lasorda
Album: Hamster
Label: SPAM records
Note: 45 rpm

Would you play your little brother's punk band on your show? These
guys don't have polish, and don't seem to have much original going on.
Still, I kind of liked them, because I imagine them saying "That was
awesome!!!" after every take. Recommend 4, 5 (B side). I couldn't
decipher any FCCs, but you'd better check for yourself.

1) 120 bpm. "Racing my ego" Snotty pop-punk. A few electronic sounds
thrown in at the end.
2) 120 bpm, then 100 bpm. "Talking to me" Singing style reminiscent
of Violent Femmes.
3) 180 bpm. "Landmine" Indecipherable lyrics, punk/metal.
4) 180 bpm. "Punkest girl in town" Noisy Green Day.
5) 60 bpm. "Matterhorn" A bit Beck-ish.
