Yeah, planet smashers are is some hot shit. But Mustard Plug...they're not very unique. As a 3rd Wave band i can't say i like them too much. Anyone who likes Mustard Plug should check out Rx Bandits and Home Grown.
FIGHT FOR YOUR RIGHT TO SKANK!!
i don't really like the planet smashers...they seem to rely on their lead singer for the quality of their songs, the horns and stuff don't seem like a large part of the sound...almost like it's just backup...but hey, however you get your thrills
Unity through nationalism isn't unity- it's nazi.
Unity through shared pain and human struggle-that's unity.
Home grown don't have any ska song at all, do they? Yes, they are pretty poppy, but I still do like them too. A very good example of pop-punk done well. They played a really small club in my town last month, but it sold out and they wouldn't sell any more tickets at the door.
Dude, the Bosstones do rule. I saw them at a festival with a big crowd about a year and a half ago and didn't think they were too great, maybe because I didn't know much of their stuff and it was such a big crowd with no room to dance. Then I saw them last year (with Snuff and Consumed) and they fucking ruled. For sure one of the best shows I've been to.
