The picture is this: 4 Minnesota teenagers that just got out of high school get first place in a local talent contest and soon after start recording their debut album for Capitol Records and will play this year's Warped Tour. My first reflections have been something like "punkrock marketing product" and "shitty pop-punk exploitation" and a slightly sorrow feeling towards the members in this band who probably will see their dreams getting shattered in no time and who can expect themselves a disappointing future where all the promises and money deals turn out to be fake.

It's possible the story ends there, only future will tell, but after listening to these 12 immensely mindsticking songs I have this hunch that this band actually has potential to hit it big when luck will be on their side. This is truelly bristling pop-punk stuff, very reminiscent to Flashlight Brown's sound: hooky music, anthemic choruses that will have you sing along in no time, riffy and pretty fast guitars which keep the overall sound very vivid and last but not least a terrific lead vocalist that is backed up by the inevitable backing-choir which is really supreme here. This also is music that any true Blink-adept will appreciate. "Glad That I Lost You" for example could have been on a late 90's Blink-album, and "I Don't Know" could have been a Dude Ranch song. I don't really understand why they chose "Lazy Generation" as the opening song though, which in my eyes is one of the weakest and most generic songs on the album. Quite funny and well done is the cover song of Mott The Hoople's "All The Young Dudes".

As usual with these releases, a lyricsheet (which didn't come with my promo-copy anyway) is pretty dispensable, as it seems like these 18 year-olds have not a lot more to talk about than relationship problems ("Crack Ho"), the emptiness of their existence and the unbright future ahead of them ("Lazy Generation", "I Don't Know") and overbearing parents ("Look At Your Son Now" and "Screw You", which was the first song frontman Travis ever wrote at age 13).

The production is just… well major-label standards I guess, which is no surprise when you know that some major names were involved in the production of it and mixing was taken care of by Tom Lord-Alge (Blink 182, Fountains Of Wayne, LTJ, Limp Bizkit, Sum 41, Weezer). Yes, this is a product that will be food for heavy discussions in the "real punkscene" for sure. It's clean, it's accessible, it's not refreshing, it's not real art and there's no trace of emotional tearjerking. This is probably a mass-consumer product, but I just love the sheer catchiness and the joyful feeling that I get when listening to this. I'll just close my eyes for their fancy cliché look and all the media -rubbish that will come with it and sing along with those mindsticking choruses and conclude that this is a release that is representative of today's popular punkmusic as seen on TV, but with a perfect bonus that it is actually an excellent release. I still think Blink 182's "Dude Ranch" is one classic and very good album, so I see no need why I shouldn't like this equally as much, although maybe there's a little more emphasis on the pop.

i heard "i dont know" and it sounded like these guys played the kind of pop-punk i like. it was fast, funny, and just awesome. i bought their cd at warped tour and after one listen despertly wanted to go back to their booth and get my $10 back. this cd was just a piece of trash, the songs all had the same formula and were just plain fucking shit. i felt really ripped off and i can see why this band was dropped from their lable and then broke up. i still really want my 10 bones back.

I saw the F-Ups play with Tsunami Bomb, and they were pretty terrible. The only song I remember from their set was like "1,2,3,4 DIE!". It was really funny.
They're so punx!

I actually do like this album enough to defend them if someone gives them massive amounts of shit. Do they play the hardcore that most of you want to hear because that's "punk rock"? Fuck no, but they still play punk rock. Punk is anything with three chords and a kid singing something about himself or what he wants to see happen to the world. Bad Religion did that with their political songs. I won't compare these guys to BR, but they are a good example of how personal punk music is.
In any case, I can sort of see this becoming something like 39/Smooth in the scheme of things, and you'll see that when they start tightening up the songwriting. They put on a fun live show, especially "at home" in Minneapolis.

You think their label would advise them on this shit. Or do a search, or something. Granted, they do put a different spin on the name, but in essence, IT'S THE SAME DAMN THING. Kids, please, do your homework. I'm embarrased for you.

yea hearing kerplunk in 97 would def. influence your decision. i wasnt saying its green day's best as you guys seem to think, i was saying it was damn good for 18 yr. olds in 1992 to write that. i like their later work better, but back in the day, that shit was cutting edge pop punk

chrisafi (July 19, 2004)

I also agree. I am all for Greenday, but Kerplunk wasn't that good. Dookie is one of the greatest punk albums of all time, and makes later works like Nimrod look bad, but they were still amazing, but not "as" good as Dookie.

I only got to hear Kerplunk after I brought Nimrod in..1997? and so that may have influenced my decision however

Anonymous (July 18, 2004)

I don't agree that Kerplunk is a good album. And Green Day is my favorite band.

Anonymous (July 18, 2004)

uhh, so wait. the new 'clean cut pop punkers w/ tats' (good charlotte/simple plan) is now not the major label new tip? its some sorta safe pop punk but more raw or what? i don't get it. i can't even formulate the words.

one thing tho. who cares if they're 18. Green Day were 18 when they did Kerplunk and we'll all probably agree thats a great record. then again it was 92 and pop punk wasnt teh devils seed yet.

the song on the warped tour comp is great but super produced making sound super fake. if this came out on lookout w/ shit production and no promotion i might have some faith in this type of band. ya know, the haircuts, the song titles etc. hmm. but this shit is pretty unbeliveable if its on a major.

"these guys are so f-ing extreme I hope they put a song on the next tony hawk game so I can beat off to it whilst I insert my other hand into my rectum and pull out better shit than this"

THAT was funny.

yellowtrash (July 17, 2004)

Although I haven't listened to the album, I have seen their MySpace music video and listened to their songs and I can fairly say that this is really unimaginitive and unpinspiring. This just sounds very mid-90s melodic punk.

http://www.myspace.com/thefups to see them whore themselves for exposure.

I can see this becoming large within the high school circle and kids with controlling parents, but really I do not see a market beyond that.

Personally I think the reek of "manufactured" is very offputting, and the music itself isn't that good either.

I think they are trying too hard to be cool, when really they look like tossheads with stupid haircuts.

hein (July 15, 2004)

Hmmm... I kinda expected all these comments (as I already mentioned in the review). Really, you guys are so predictable! Actually, as predictable as you seem to be able to predict a band's sound upon their bandname, their age and clothes they wear. I gave this a 4 and a half star rating, and I'm not ashamed of that, even though these guys look propostorous indeed. After listening to punkrock for about 20 years (oh, and I love the FU's as well), I have come to the simple conclusion that I think an album is good when the thing is in my CD-changer for more than once, and I can tell you this one got quite some spins in recent weeks.

I have given up on the idea that a really good album should be something innovating, played by musicians that are highly skilled and that have a cool non-commercial attitude quite a while ago. You can try to do that for a few years, but in the end there's only one thing that matters: whether you like the sound that is coming from that album. I agree, these teens look a bit childish and the marketing that comes with this is not representative of what our scene is all about, but damn, give this thing a listen first before judging the sound.

To the person saying my ratings are always too high... to my shame I have to acknowledge that I only review about 5% of the stuff I receive. I never wanted this hobby to become a job, so I just review the stuff I like. And I just hate to disappoint people as well.

Oh, and this will sound nice in your ears: my 2 kids (age 3 and 6) just adore this album! It tells a bit about the catchiness in my opinion, but I'm sure you'll see it as a proof of something less positive.

FeatheredMullet (July 15, 2004)

If we have mohawks we'll look so much punker and tougher than those other salad tossers. Flipping off the camera is also cool, maybe we should consider shitting on stage and throwing the shit into the crowd, some golden showers? I'm going to strap some dynamite in myself and jump into the crowd taking out all them.
Damn GG was one punk mother fucker.

FortyMinutesWest (July 15, 2004)

I just can't imagine the band's thinking when they decided to use this name.

"Ok, we need something rebellious, but clean enough not to offend the parents of the kid's buying our shitty albums."

Oh wait, I can imagine exactly what they were thinking.

There are actually a few good songs on this cd. The bad songs though are really fucking lame and they repeat the same words over and over and over and over and over. Songs 3 and 5 are the best(song 5 is the one from the new Warped comp which is the only reason I bought this cd).

ZDP (July 15, 2004)

This is really similar to Adam's comment about The Black Maria the other day, but I found their website's description of the album to be hilarious.

"The F-Ups self-titled debut is bursting, bubbling, and bristling with 12 high-octane high school anthems that grapple with the typical universal concerns of rebellious teenhood: namely, aimlessness and utter lack of ambition ("Lazy Generation," and "I Don't Know"); sexual experimentation gone awkwardly awry (the hilarious, Jerry Springer-esque tale of a trailer-park tryst, "Crack Ho"); and overbearing parents ("Screw You," which was the first song Travis ever wrote at age 13, and "Look At Your Son Now"). And what other fledgling pop-punk outfit would be ambitious and ballsy enough to cover Mott The Hoople's "All The Young Dudes" on their debut release, and be able to pull it off?"

high-octane is a term these major labels really like to throw around these days.

i havent heard this album, but the rating looks a little high for a review that contains words like "pop punk" and "minnesota." granted its quite popular to rag on pop punk these days, i hate to wave the 'punk is dead' flag, but these kids definitely aint no saviors of the genre. i have a feeling the mohawks they don are less a statement against the dominant class (again: pop punk teenagers from minnesota) and more falling back into conformist fashion. i should at least listen to them first before i start trashing them, but i aint forking over 18 bucks for mere messageboard rant privelages.

gladimnotemo (July 14, 2004)

I read the same thing...the FUs went along the lines of FEAR....someone else did the same thing, but I can't remember for the life of me who it was...

Score is, therefore, for "Beef Bologna".

Anonymous (July 14, 2004)

The FU's were great.

I'm undecided about their later stuff, though... I personally think their rightwing turn was just made to piss off the punks (as dumb as that may be). Kind of like a less overt FEAR.

Read their MRR interview with Tim Y. You get the distinct feeling that they're playing a huge joke on the political punks who take themselves too seriously.

Repeating what I wrote the first time this band popped up- there's already a Fuckups AND an FUs. Both 80s punk bands would mop the floor with these kids any day of the week. Here's details for folks who don't know either of these bands.

The Fuckups, from San Francisco, were most infamous for their absolutely great "FU82" 7inch on Fowl Records and their dodgy singer Bob Noxious.

The FUs, from Boston, were on the vital "This Is Boston Not LA" and put out 2 great hardcore classic 12"s "Kill For Christ" and "My America" before graduating to more rock-ish punk on later records. They've been kept in print by Taang Records. They had a right-ward turn politically later on in their career. "Unite and Lose" is an undeniable tune.

I'm really hating that singer from drowning pool - i want to run into him so I can knock that fucker out. leather pants and shoulder length hair? I bet he bangs a lot of underage girls, much like our friends the f-ups - maybe the name means Fuck UPS - as in united parcel service. maybe they worked there and some supervisor tried some funny shot with them and they wouldn't put out, so they got fired and when they were escorted out the building they were like "man F ups!"

And not to knock this review or anything, because in all seriousness, it's a great review for a shitty band; but this review could have easily been kneeding the balls of the latest Simple Plan record. That's what pisses me off about the recent airwave invasion of psuedo-punk bands--they all sound the same. The only difference about this band is their sorry attempt at masking their sugar coated bullshit by tossing a few F-words into the mix. Hmm, I wonder if they'll introduce themselves as the FUCK UPS at their colisuem shows when no major label execs aren't around to slap them on the wrist for it...?
