I’ve been looking for this after hearing it at the excellent Worthless Trash blog. James does an incredible job and I have to make a plug for it once again via this post.

I think the real winner is Get Out… A powerpop/punk smasher that sounds like some skilled musicians wanting to jump the new wave bandwagon. And of course they get away with it.

I won’t write more about Airship but instead you shall head over to Worthless Trash and read all about it.

    This is horrible Pub-Rock, Peter.

  2. The Flakes // Drummer says:

    Once again you’re wrong Erich :).

  3. Not horrible Pub Rock, but killer ‘fake’ Punk!!
    I have a slight preference for “…Spray Paint” but both are amazing. How the hell did you find a stock copy?

  4. The Flakes // Drummer says:

    Ha ha yeah killer “fake” punk is a better description.

    I found a stock copy 2 weeks ago in Stockholm for $2.00. Went into a shop where they have an incredible amount of 7inches and started with the A box. And the first thing that pops up is this. Praise the lord.

    For once in my lifetime I’ll agree with Erich:
    just plain crap flares-rock. Im sure they wore mustaches!!! NO!

  6. No ‘taches Tim, but a Eurovision casualty on vocals, two brothers from Gibraltar on guitar/bass and a dungaree wearing drummer. Exactly the bunch of no-marks you’d expect to make a brilliant record like this! Trouser width was probably wrong too! You should listen again and again ’til you get it. Pseudo-Punk is the new KBD!!!

  7. The Flakes // Drummer says:

    Hey Tim, I really hope they wore mustaches. Spikes, mohawks and studs? The ultimate punk outfit is a mustache.

  8. Jay Thurston says:

    Moustache rock! Hell yeah! A moustache and a mullet and your ready to rock.

  9. Tim S. says:

    Haha! Nice responses…
    I guess you are all right. But mustache and mullet is the typical white trash assrock-trailerpark look since too many years, right? Even a Hitler mustache was worn by Merle Allin… Not much left today!!
    Hows about a Taliban look for real Punkers?!!
    Worn with Star of David-Earrings…

    Love
    Tim

    Nope. A moustache like the singer for Toto and a mullet like the singer for Maiden…and presto…you will be the biggest moustache with a mullet rocker of all time. Hell yeah! Oh, and don’t forget the Wallaby shoes and some Pachuli…Oh yeah.
