If you were a religious reader of Maximum RockNRoll in 2003-2004, odds are you know about the Observers. The band put out quite possibly the best punk record of 2003: So What’s Left Now. Some writers in that magazine have even called the Observers one of the greatest punk bands in history (I agree). There may be some truth in the always controversial statement, “All the best punk bands only put out one or two records.” The break-up was relatively discrete and those are usually the most intense. I sort of doubt that all the members of the band are still friends. The bassist and drummer went onto form a band called Defect Defect. The guitarist went onto form a band called Clit Ripper. And Douglas Burns, the lead singer/songwriter, has finally come out of hiding with two new bands, Red Dons and Revisions. Red Dons (on Deranged Records) pretty much pick up where the Observers left off. Revisions flip the proverbial script.
