The Descendents – Fat E.P. 7″

There’s many bands that I really like then there’s bands that I really really love. Descendents have always been one of them. Just listen to my old HC band Raped Teenagers and you can hear I ripped off a lot of beats from Descendents and continue do so whenever I can. I know I’m a bit late on this but you know Frank Navetta died on the 31st of October.

As one of the co-founders of the band, responsible for the art on this EP and composer of many a great songs his importance can’t be overstated. And he will always be remembered as the guitarist on one of the best Punk LPs ever made: Milo Goes to College.

Hard to pick a fave among the five tracks here but over the years Mr. Bass has grown on me and that’s a Navetta song so this goes out to you Frank.

    Exciting to be the first one to comment on this one. It’s pretty decent I must say. Did the band release anything else?

  14. SwePete says:

    Short,sharp and senseless! Just a tad better than Nig-Heist. I like this one…

  15. hairy palm says:

    Too fast for me. I like the slowest songs of Descendents.

  16. Jay Thurston says:

    Too fast for me…I would rather listen to Billy Joel’s love ballads!

  17. dewey decimal says:

    One of the best HC 7 inches ever recorded. Classic.

  18. hairy palm says:

    Maybe Richard Clayderman’s version of My Dad Sucks

  19. Jay Thurston says:

    Kenny G. does the best version of My Dad Sucks. It makes my skin crawl.

    I Like Food was one of the 1st HC tracks I heard on John Peel in late 81/early 82 along with the Conservatives and some Flex Your Head tracks. It’s hard to describe how jawdropping hearing something like this was at the time of Chron Gen and the Anti Nowhere League! And then a year later getting to see MDC on the DKs last UK tour……turned for life….!

  25. David says:

    I’d like to see the lyrics of I Like Food and Wienerschnietzel, any possibility of you sending them to me or posting them here?

  26. David says:

    Nevermind.. Noticed you can magnify the images

  27. Kirk says:

    Great EP. As a college radio jock in 1981, I always tried to cue up the next record while “Weinerschnitzel” was playing. Never made it; always had to go to tape to dodge dead air. If I only had 3 more seconds or faster hands.

  28. Buttcheese says:

    As usual this is great. KBD kicks ass!!

  29. Nathan G says:

    Yes. A titanic piece of wax with “Mr. Bass” being the star of the show! I saw a student wearing a Descendents tee today, he looked pretty happy!!
