Sidecar / The Almighty Trigger Happy 7"
Well, it's on clear red vinyl, so that already makes this release cool.
Sidecar, from Cleveland, Ohio, contribute 2 melodic punk songs, with the
standout being "Solo" (which is also the standout of the whole 7"). After
seeing Sidecar live, it's hard to go back to a studio recording, because
for some reason, every song I've heard by them on a release, it sounds like
the singer (who is also the drummer) is... Well, it just sounds like
there's something up his ass. Live, it's different, though, and I
recommend everyone to check them out for a rockin' live show. Trigger
Happy, on the B side, follow through with the catchy melodies, cranking out
two diddies of their own. neither stick out in my mind that much, but the
songs are solid, with your basic verse/chorus/verse/chorus/instrumental
verse/slowdown. If that makes no sense to you, just put on almost any
Fat/Epitaph release and you'll know what I'm talking about. Anyways, if
you're one of those people who are into melodic punk and are always looking
for a new band to obsess over, try this 7".
