Alternatively spin The Clashs debut and hear the sound of confused, angry, motivated rapscallions making a glorious noise to vent and make a point.

"urgency" in a musical sense, that is; to say that this thing sounds like it's gonna explode ya fuckin stereo half the time while the mixing on that first Clash record is obviously much more subdued cuz '77.

yeah these guys and alk3 both originated from the same mediocre mid-90s chicago ska band slapstick. also dan from alk3 and 2/3 of tla are in the falcon.



i recommend starting with cocktails & dreams, a comp of songs from their pre-fat days. then spin apathy and exhaustion and go in order from there.

Greatest story is a liiiiiiittle bit better than this but the run from apathy and exhaustion through this can’t be beat. Unfairly underrated band
