I can't begin to tell you how upset I am over missing that Marky Ramone's Blitzkrieg show in Philly last night.
Anyway, Joe Pelone didn't miss it. Ugh:
[Andrew] W.K. was excellent. He took a few songs to really get moving, but his pop-punk vocals were dead on from the get go. The guy revved up the crowd while giving plenty of love to Marky and the other musicians. Marky, for his part, can still play absurdly fast. It's kind of intimidating to watch him play eighth notes on the hi-hat at warp speed without moving his arm. One humorous observation, though: Dude played way more fills than the Ramones ever allowed on record. He even got a drum solo at the very end. Guess that's one perk of being your own boss.

o sum up the indie-emo-alernative cocktail created by Football, Etc., look no further than "Fair" and "Goal." They open the record to perfection and summarize its heart, soul and emotive traction. Simple hooks and catchy anthems are what the majority of the band's works are based on, but how enchanting it gets at times is quite unbelievable. As straightforward and uncomplicated as it is, Audible never gets boring.
