The Essentials – Fast Music In A Slow Town E.P. 7″


The Essentials related bands: The Eat and The Reactions. Calls for quality? Yepp. Man that link them together: Pete Moss(drums) who started to unearth some great Florida acts on the net a couple of years ago. Check out his site.

So what do we have on this golden little record? Turn Off Your Radio is pure punk/powerepop madness the way I like it. Super catchy with a great hate the radio lyric that where nearly as obligatory as the hate disco, Reagan, war, mom, dad, sister, brother etc lyrics. With I Don’t Get they prove that HC had nearly gotten down to Florida in 1982. Oh well here comes Johnny. A cheesy rock n roll tune that I can’t stand. But it doesn’t matter that much cause with the last track, It’s Essential, they’re back on track with another super catchy punk tune. Fuck, this is a hell of a great record!! It saved my saturday now it’s going to save yours.
