Half Hour To Go
"Items For The Full Outfit" CD (Grass)
It never fails to amaze me, but labels will still sign and release albums by bands which are about as interesting as canned meat products, witness Half Hour To Go. Naturally, NME, in their characteristically tactful and understated way, lauded this piece of crap to the heavens, spooging all over its boring, rehashed alt-rock melodies and chords. Given their sound, I kept expecting them to break into "Sail Away"; since they didn't pay off their debt to their musical (and for all I know, spiritual) ancestors, this album sucks, and that right poorly.
