Editorial Reviews

Review

The scrappy reunion effort ... picks up where the band left off in 1984.... -- Entertainment Weekly

Throughout the album reverbed guitars boil over according to the classic Who recipe and [Clem] Burke does his best Keith Moon all-over-the-kit impression. -- USA Today

If you like the Plimsouls, this is a must have. This album is one of those rare moments in music where great songs, a great band, great sonics and fun collide. It's such a treat to listen to, it's very hard to articulate.

I really enjoy the early records. I must have seen them 20 times when they were the hardest working band in LA. This disc is different however. It really showcases the maturity of Pete's songwriting, and somehow, the growth of the band as a unit. I don't really understand how it could have been anything other than a nostagia run, but it is nothing of the sort. The songs are fresh, the performances are world class and the entire package says *now*.

Pete's songs are some of his best. Hopeful, funny and deliberate. The open-tuned guitars have such a mysterious sound. The interplay between the bass, guitars and vocals is outstanding, and Clem tears the drum kit up as usual.

While each track is its own highlight, I was particularly entertained by the title track. Even though the lyrics are not included, I suspect the song is about a famous music critic at the LA Times. *You don't know what you're talking about, you don't seem to care if you ever find out*. Sorry Robert, but I think you deserved the sock on the jaw!

It's disappointing that this album was missed by so many. I hope they find a reason to record again. While Pete Case has done some remarkable stuff away from the Plimsouls, you get a sense of *coming home* listening to these songs. He's so genuine and original, it's hard to believe, given all the deriviitive stuff that's out there! This is a really great rock & roll band!

Check it out, and pray that they do it again.

For Plimsouls fans (the few and the intelligent) this recording is like rewinding the clock to 1981. Three of the four original members bring you the tell-tale sandpaper tonsils of Peter Case, No Foolin'guitar licks from Eddie Munoz and garage banging drumming of Dave Pahoa. The band has, to it's credit, gone back to the basics that you know and love from the first album. I don't have to tell you anything else except PLAY IT LOUD! Sorry, what was i thinking? Clem Burke plays the drums and Dave Pahoa plays base guitar OOOPPPSSS
