Editorial Reviews

Kerplunk! Californian quintet Foxboro Hottubs are poised to release their debut album 'Stop Drop And Roll!!!' on May 19th on Reprise. The album, also released on vinyl by Jingle Town Records, features the Billboard hit single 'Mother Mary'. 'Stop Drop And Roll!!!' features Foxboro Hottubs' energised hybrid of garage, rock 'n' roll and melodic punk that's reminiscent of cult bands such as The Network and Pinhead Gunpowder. The album includes the band's debut single 'Mother Mary' that hit the Top 20 of the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks amidst frenzied comparisons with a certain hugely successful rock band. Foxboro Hottubs aren't part of a redneck agenda; their adrenalised sound is equally reminsicent of classic sixties rock on the stomping 'Ruby Room', retro power-pop on 'The Pedestrian' (sample lyric: "It doesn't take a genius to be an idiot") and the furious garage rock of the title-track. Consisting of Jason White, Jason Freese, Michael Pritchard, Frank Edwin Wright III and the Reverend Strychnine Twitch, the band stated, "We are four guys who love to play music and be spontaneous. After a few late night jams and a few too many bottles of wine, we were inspired to record some rockin' eight-track recordings." The band's name is explained simply: "The Foxboro Hottubs were a place we used to sneak booze and chicks into late at night. But most of the time it was just 'dude soup'."

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Retro January 5, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I "discovered" Foxboro Hottubs in the bargain bin at a Base Exchange in Balad Air Base in Iraq. I bought the album purely out of an interest for the art direction and an intense desire to hear something not in the mainstream. Initially, I was impressed, but I criticized the lead singer for "sounding too much like Billie Joe Armstrong from Green Day." Imagine my surprise when I learned that Foxboro Hottubs was in fact the same band members as Green Day. Forget the awards and the pop scene hype, this is what Armstrong, Dirnt, Cool, White, Freese and Preston are all about, profound yet everyday music that isn't pretentious. If you're an indie music snob, get lost, and if you're a pop sensation evangelist, get lost, this album isn't for you. I think this album is about having fun and being true to yourself, Hollywood be damned. Ironically, I find that "American Idiot" and similar songs are quite popular with the US Military despite the `anti-American' message. Foxboro Hottubs, likewise, is quintessentially American, the message is "We are here, we don't care what you think, We're here to live."
...God Bless Rock and Roll .

4.0 out of 5 stars Stop Drop and Pull Those Stick Out of Your Hindends June 29, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Yeah it's Green Day. But no it's not. And while it only takes a quick glance at some reviewers to understand that shades of gray escape them, I gotta ask...why make such a big deal out of what is a one off, for their own fun, and hey some fans might like it too album? The songs are short, fast and fun, much like ice cream on a hot summer day. Take it for what it is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great rock and roll album! May 30, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Green Day tries something different with this fun, catchy, and two-sided rock album. I commend them for trying something different with Foxboro Hot Tubs (garage rock) and The Network (Devoesque rock). Both efforts are worth your time and money. Also, Foxboro Hot Tubs are on tour now and it's well well well worth it to see them if you can. You may never get another chance to see Green Day perform in a small intimate venue, like they are now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect garage!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! January 30, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Yeah, it's Green Day (Armstrong. Dint and Cool) plus three friedns and members of the touring band.

Yeah, it's garage rock.

Yeah, it's derivative in that the songs harken back to The Who, The Stooges, The Sex Pistols (think of their cover of I'm Not Your Steppin' Stone) and The Kinks, among others.

Yeah, you will be grabbed at the beginning of this album - the correct term for this preternatural copy of a 60s party record - in the same way you were grabbed by the start of Tutti Frutti. It's hard to imagine and then believe what you are hearing after the quiet and following clcik as the needle hits the vinyl from the first, eponymous cut. From there, it's a wild ride through eleven more songs that personify the young, loud and snotty side of garage.

Yeah, you will listen to it over and over and over.

Yeah, I hope they do it again!

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE! July 12, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Absolutely love this release, as I do with almost anything released by Green Day or Billie Joe. Got the cd in the mail sooner than I expected & within seconds, it was in my player & blasting out of my speakers. Cannot quit replaying "Pedestrian" and my kids have the "ba ba ba" part of Mother Mary down to a science. They sing along quite well to "American Idiot," "Jesus of Suburbia," "Castaway" & "Deadbeat Holiday"....so they are true fans in the making as well. So all this to say, FBHT, aka Green Day, has quite the extended fan base. As well they should. Best band ever , in my mind.....Billie Joe rocks & can do no wrong with his music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great CD for your next '60's trivia party! June 12, 2008
Format:Vinyl
You gotta wonder what Billie Joe Armstrong's older siblings were listening to during his formative years... what '60's gems pervaded his subconscious mind, because this CD hearkens back to classic AM radio tunes. It's fun to listen to the songs, play "Name That Tune" and identify the groups and hits to which Green Day pays tribute: from the Rascals and the Yardbirds to the Monkees and the Raiders, and everyone in between. While the guitar and drum work is spot-on, Dirnt's bass work is notably superior to the original genre. Armstrong is undoubtedly one of the cleverest hook-writers of our generation. When you tire of playing "Name That Tune," just imagine the career he could have had as an advertising jingle writer. (Move over, Barry Manilow -- Strychnine Twitch is here!) Geez!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sixties Punk meets Eighties Punk January 3, 2012
Format:Vinyl
You got to hand it to Green Day, Billy Joe and company obviously did their homework, both here and on their follow-up 21th Century rock opera, in researching and mining the past and re-inventing it in wonderfully new, inventive ways with the unique Green Day stamp on it. Even though all of these songs are derivative, and would easily have fit on any Moldie Oldie radio stations without raising any eyebrows, many would also fit on any Green Day album, even the first punked-out Dookie, and no one would recognize they were "just" an homage to the past. I think this just shows the universality of music, and the old adage that the more things change, the more they stay the same. I always felt the Sex Pistols were alot like the Stooges, who were alot like the 13th Floor Elevators, who were alot like Question Mark and the Mysterians, and not THAT different from Gene Vincent (ad infinitum). That is, rock is evolutionary and revolutionary all at once, and as long as it rocks out, who cares? Like Duke Ellington's famous quote that there were only two kinds of music: good and bad. It's a fun game trying to figure out which famous sixties rock songs Green Day, alias Foxboro, re-invents here, both their words and music chime down the dusty corridors of time and reflect all kinds of ancient influences: the early Rolling Stones, early Who, the Monkees, Paul Revere and the Raiders, the Standells, the Seeds, the Blues Magoos, the McCoys and Question Mark echo throughout these punked-out power pop delights, but also moody, dreamy groups like the Zombies and Beau Brummels in that wonderfully evocative "Dark Side of Night".

This is the new "Green Day" album
This is the debut album from The Foxboro Hot Tubs, not Green Day. Green Day are still working on their follow-up to "American Idiot." This is just a fun side-project that they're doing. They did the same thing 3 1/2 years ago when they released an album as The Network.
