you know doing that thing they do with fun and stuff http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ke4h95pue-w
It was in a little coffee shop in Portland, back in '11. Near the end of the show, Hutch's guitar started to malfunction. So during the set closer, otherwise known as "Here's Your Future," right when it got to the breakdown...
...he smashed the fucking thing. Straight up destroyed it. Then he crowdsurfed outta that bitch, as the crowd rushed the stage.
It is the single most punk rock thing I have seen in my life.
Some people say they sound like Green Day. Those people are earless fucks.
This sounds cracking.
IT'S GONNA RAAAAAAAAAAAAIN
I love how every song sounds exactly the same, but they're all brilliant.
I'd definitely go for Fuckin A - great development from the debut, and every song is a cracker. Love TBTBTM as well, but feel it dips pretty drastically in the second half. Really really hope they announce some UK dates soon, I'm sure they will :)
followed by More Parts Per Million, I reckon.
I prefer their odd numbered albums, so I hope this bucks the trend.
I liked the slightly different sound on the last album, but it is great to have the old lofi punky fuzz back.
Any thoughts? Only listened once, but definitely seems better than the last two, if only because it's a little bit more gritty. Nice and brief, as always, good flow between the songs.
Seriously upset they seem to be completely ignoring Fuckin A from the setlist, but really hope they announce some dates over here soon.
and this is sounding absolutely incredible! Love the return to the more lo-fi sound, somewhere between Fuckin A and TBTBTM in terms of fidelity levels.
The tempos are pretty fast again, but more importantly than that, it's one of their best collections of songs. It just sounds like classic Thermals, somehow they manage to turn great chord progressions into brilliance with Hutch's vocals
