"People are more hideous than monsters"

You thought I was gone, didn't you? Well, to paraphrase a young Johnny Rotten, "I'm back! Wif a vengeance!"

Kicking things off, we've got a three track 7" from Tampa,Florida's Pink Lincolns. These guys are what I would call Punk n' Roll, I guess, because they've got chops (guitar solos), but retain a snotty, fuck you-edness sure to offend your parents. "Sumo Fumes" starts off with a cover of X-Ray Spex that should sound pretty familiar to anyone who's ever listened to punk, anywhere. Then we get my favorite track, "Monsters", it's thought provoking and it jams. What else do you want? There's also a third track, another cover, this time it's "I Got You" by the Split Enz. To be honest, I think I've only listened to the last track/b-side, maybe ten times. But, "Monsters"? About a zillion plays in my lifetime so far. Grab it for that alone, what 'ave ya got to lose?

Smell the Fumes Here

Only as long as it has a reason to exist. Fine people, such as yourself make it worthwhile.
