The Riverdales - Tarantula
It's been a productive time for Ben Weasel. Taking time out for a second from his most recent spate of serial label-hopping and band-member tossing, he has drafted Danny Vapid back into the fold and knocked out another Riverdales record. Weasel has said that the last Riverdales record was intended to be a double and that Tarantula should be considered the second half. Noted. Of course, there is all the hoo-hah about this being a double guitar-ed Riverdales and Invasion USA wasn't, but whatever. Sadly, while Tarantula is ok, I'd really rather hear Noise By Numbers or Screeching Weasel. Production is good. Sounds like The Ramones. And it's on Recess, which is pretty cool. Buy it here if you like. I think I'm going to listen to Teenage Bottlerocket instead.
