From The Nerves came The Beat and The Plimsouls - that's a lot of great Power Pop ........which is why they are all held in such high esteem by people who like this stuff.
Here's The Beat playing their classic Rock N Roll Girl for an audience who will enable it to not climb the charts at all (um) and which has 2 of the 2 necessary ingredients for Power Pop right in the title.
Hey.......who was the first person to post Jeff Rosenstock on MAR anyway - maker of 3 fantastic and timely albums (his last 3).
Awwww, you're all welcome and the reason I mention him is because he means it, man - he's not faking it.
He ties into my (really) Old School Leftist leaning political side like The Clash - far more than the ancient and comatose Democratic presidential candidate and the gross Kamala Harris, and if you think that makes me "pro-Trump" I'm thinking it makes you kinda stupid.
Here he is last night on apparent Punk Rock fan Seth Myers show, who is "so Punk Rock" that he bleeps Rosenstock TWICE.....ok then....
Album of 2020.......Bob Dylan ......Reissue of 2020: The 'Mats (and that's 3 just in the last 4 years bitches!) and now we have the live performance of the year too......Jack White a genuine Rock star in a world of female artiste-vocalists - and that's how I refer to the MEN for Godsakes .............who unleashed this astonishing performance 2 weeks ago on SNL.
