With four full-lengths, a healthy handful of EPs and 7 inches and a compilation of such under their belts -- as well as a few side projects resulting in a whole proverbial mess of albums -- there's so much that can be said about Kansas City, MO's Get Up Kids, and yet, upon the release of their curta.
With four full-lengths, a healthy handful of EPs and 7 inches and a compilation of such under their belts -- as well as a few side projects resulting in a whole proverbial mess of albums -- there's so much that can be said about Kansas City, MO's Get Up Kids, and yet, upon the release of their curtain call album, very little comes to mind except the clichés deserving of any great band. Yes, they put out a promising debut that likely remains the favorite for many followers. Yes, they released what's widely considered one of -- if not the -- best albums of their time and genre. Yes, they went through the requisite "fan alienation" period. Yes, they reigned in a likely majority of those fans with a "return to form." So what to do now that the cycle has come full circle, essentially? Why, break up, of course. But before the history of the Get Up Kids can officially be laid to rest, we're given their first live album, a career-spanning collection of songs recorded early this year at a "tenth anniversary" party of sorts in Lawrence, KS.
