        01.     LOW LOW LOW
        02.     NOTHINGS EVER RIGHT

Legendary Californian Punks T.S.O.L. return with a new two tracker only released in
the UK. Low Low Low is a straight ahead no nonsense two minute and twenty second punk
nugget with a massive chorus and a total pop edge. The guitars are chunky and the
keyboards add to the texture. It's instant and demands you to get up and play it again
and again. On the flip is Nothings Ever Right - another pop gem with a multi layered
vocal that hints at Valley of the Dolls era Generation X with a 70's radio friendly

        11.     DANCE WITH ME

The first in a series of classic vinyl re-issues featuring original artwork
painstakingly restored and hot-stamped with gold foiling, Dance With Me was the
first album by Long Beach punk band T.S.O.L. (True Sounds of Liberty). Originally
released on Frontier Records in 1981, the album hasnt been available since 2007 when
it was re-issued by The Offsprings Nitro Records. Other uber-fans include Guns N Roses
(Steven Adler was wearing a T.S.O.L. t-shirt in the Sweet Child o Mine video). Dance
With Me saw the band move away from the hardcore punk roots of their debut EP released
earlier in the year and the music became more melodic and goth-tinged as did the
lyrics. The album was recorded by Thom Wilson (Dead Kennedys, Bad Religion,
The Offspring) and the cover featured paintings by Mark Wassman and photos by Glen
E. Friedman. Other than the Misfits, no band has combined gothy subject matter and
punk rock barre chords as well as T.S.O.L., who hit the nail on the head with this
classic 1981 recording.
