This is a record by a criminally underrated band called the Cosmetics. This is the kind of music that’s quiet typical for the years 1979-1980: plenty of melody, clever arrangements and a sweet tooth for hooks. I’m feeling like a raggare when I’m listening to this. Thinking “This kind of music ain’t made no more. Bands where far more enjoyable and better in the old days.”. Kind of pathetic ain’t it. But believe me I’m really trying to let new bands into my ears.
They’ve played Fall Out Boy a lot on the radio lately and I’ve tried to give ’em a shoot. But boy what a boring band. No substance. No passion. Just as interesting as disco was in the 70s only less dangerous. But I guess it’s the kind of the same feeling that the mid ’80s HC fanatics gets while listening to the Cosmetics. Powerpop rules and HC sucks!
