AGAINST ME – I Was A Teenage Anarchist EP

May 3, 2010

As a prelude to the June 8th release of their latest album, White Crosses, Against Me! give us this four-track EP. Two of the songs, “I Was A Teenage Anarchist” and “Rapid Decompression” are from the album and the other two, “One By One” and “Bitter Divisions”, are B-Sides. I love the energy of this […]

SURFER BLOOD – Astro Coast

January 29, 2010

The debut from the West Palm Beach, Florida band. I got this album to review a few weeks ago but was delayed by other projects so I haven’t been able to listen until now. In those short few weeks, it seems to me that the band has been labeled as the next big thing and […]

He maintains the political and protest songs of his bands, offering commentary on the world around us. This release maintains the […]

Tom GabelAnna Is A Stool Pigeon single

October 23, 2008

He is the lead singer for Against Me! This is the single for his debut solo EP, Heart Burns, which comes out on October 28, 2008. The sound is different from Against Me! in that it is acoustic-guitar based, but it still has politically-charged lyrics and Tom’s trademark angry young man spoken vocals. It’s good […]
