The Figgs - The Man Who Fights Himself
It's always nice when America's Finest Rock Band, aka The Figgs, drop some new tunes in our lap. And so they have. The Man Who Fights Himself marks the 10th studio full-length (in 23 years) from our Saratoga heroes. In keeping with its number, there are 10 songs, all of whom are pretty great. They aren't all 10s, but they are a hell of a lot better than most stuff that claims to be rock music in this day and age. You get the expected level of rockness, along with some Joe Jackson/Knack-y turns, a little vocoder, plus the drummer sings one and has a theme song, so why not cut to the chase and snap this up stat-like. Here's a link. Buy it now. The guys have kids, fer chrissakes.
