THE #1s - Sharon 7"
Brand Sorry State
Second single from Dublin, Ireland's mighty The #1s. Power-pop is a genre plagued by weak bar bands trying to cross-market their shlock to punks and/or hacks who couldn't write a great hook to save their lives, but The #1s pull off the near-impossible feat of combining explosive punk energy with the catchiest choruses this side of your local golden oldies radio station. You could file this next to your Protex, Undertones, and Exploding Hearts records (yes, it really is that good), but why file it at all when you could just let this glorious slice of pop perfection live on your turntable for the foreseeable future?
