SURPRISE 015 | SONIC AVENUES - S/T LP
Formed in 2006, they've been developing their craft over 4 years...preparing, and finally executing...this is the debut album from the Montreal power pop punk combo. This record originally came out limited to 300 pieces on the great Ottawa based label GOING GAGA and I am happy to repress this with different cover art, again co-released with SABOTAGE.
This album came out of left field and knocked me out of my boots when I heard it the first time... and still does. Powerpop and punk blended together just perfectly. Think of the UNDERTONES and MARKED MEN in one bed and you come very close to how great this record really is. Why can't music always be this great?
Bang on performance, slick punk rock, with a great reverence for pop music songwriting. A totally satisfying sound! A great Friday night solution for any tin-banger, house-spouse or desk jockey!!!
This record originally came out on GOING GAGA RECORDS from Canada in a press of 300. Now available again from both SABOTAGE RECORDS and TAKEN BY SURPRISE RECORDS. First press are 500, 400 on black and 100 on blue wax, available only from the band and labels.
