Because what else are Sunday mornings for?
It’s these guys, who I’ve noted before. I like the album, and would recommend it if you enjoy power pop in general.
I don’t know about the singer but Bun E. Carlos rocks.
Hello from Finland! (Meaning, forgive me my bad english…)
I wandered here on this site by accident. I had just finished Old Man’s War (for the second time) and decited to see what Google knows about the book. Not much to be honest… So this is where I ended up. (can you say it like that?)
Now to the point/back on topic. I suppose someone might listen to that stuff, but it certainly reguires certain characteristics from a person. :) I’ve always thought that sunday mornings were for hangover. Oh well…
Weekends are for relaxation. Anything involving “power” should be saved for the work week.
I own this record because of your previous introduction of them. And by record, I mean collection of MP3s.
I stumbled on one of those Elvis Costello shows last night; this one was with guest Jakob Dylan. They got together with a couple of drummers and a totally insane slide guitar player and covered ‘Straight To Hell’ by the Clash. I’ve been listening to it over and over since, and yeah, that includes Sunday morning at 8:30.
Dunno if I’d call it ‘pop’ but it’s definitely powerful. Those guys got some kind of groove going there.
If you like PowerPop, try the Webstirs – they’re local to Chicago, originally from U of Ill.
