Reviews - 6/10/11

I should be drinking wine right now.  Scratch that...I AM drinking wine right now, but I should be drinking really good wine right now.  But that is none of your concern.  This, on the other hand, is!

Los Readymade - Demo - In the words of the great Murphy's Law, "yahooooooooooooooo!!!!".  I don't know where the fuck these guys are from because all the songs are either in Spanish or heavily-accented English, but their names are listed as Kevin, Michael, Frank and fucking Dallas.  Those names are the antithesis of Latino to my mind's ears.

Doesn't matter.  Maybe it's a great rib pulled on the Beercan staff to make Los Readymade appear more eccentric than they are (because being from a country foreign to the US automatically makes you eccentric...of course).  The important thing is that this is rip-roarin' garage punk, or whatever the fuck you want to call it.

Yes, this type of stuff has been done to death.  Yes, there are a couple covers on top of that fact.  But when it's done with this much intensity and recklessness, you get a pass from us 10 times out of 10.  Keep on keepin' on you Los Readymade weirdos.  By the way, they sound nothing like Murphy's Law, but kind of the same attitude and, after all, punk rock is more about attitude.  Good times attitude, you fucks.

And finally, that is some top-notch EP artwork.  ART!!!  (
