Editorial Reviews

THE RIVERDALES were the short lived post SCREECHING WEASEL project of Ben Weasel, Danny Panic and Danny Vapid. Here we have a re-release of the out of print first album on Lookout Records. Plus a slew of bonus tracks including 3 unreleased tracks, "No Sense" from the Storm the Streets session, and live tracks from their tour with GREEN DAY. THE RAMONES had always been a SCREECHING WEASEL influence, but THE RIVERDALES took it to the next level. Just look at Ben Weasel's hair for goodness sake.

Format: Audio CD
The Riverdales' self-titled album, originally released in 1995, still stands tall today as one of the great classics of the Lookout Records heyday of the mid-90s.

Due to Ben Foster (Weasel)'s legal problems with Lookout, resulting in every Screeching Weasel album, plus this one, being deleted from the Lookout catalogue, fans now have the chance to rediscover the album, re-released on Asian Man Records and with 12 bonus tracks, 10 of which are previously unreleased.

The original album remains timeless. If you couldn't tell from the band name and the song titles, the Riverdales' biggest influence are, of course, the Ramones. And of course, this album does sound like an unreleased Ramones record from their mid-to-late-70s era, with the benefit of not one but two lead singers: Ben Foster and Dan Schafer, better known to punk fans as Danny Vapid. It's Schafer's first outing on lead vocals since his tenure with Chicago punks Sludgeworth, and the vocals provide a pleasant and, yes, much more Joey Ramone-sounding contrast to Foster's more abrasive, snotty tones. The combination is perfect for this album. Like any classic Ramones record, the bulk of the material is fast-paced hard-rocking pop punk at its best, and there are three more slower-paced tunes, "Back To You" (memorably featured in the film 'Angus') with a brilliant lead vocal by Schafer, "I Think About You During The Commercials", and "In Your Dreams". Simply put, if you're a Ramones or Screeching Weael fan, you need to get this album.

Production and mixing is handled by Mass Giorgini and Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong, who took the Riverdales out on tour with him when "Insomniac" was released, also in 1995.
