The Aquabats play through some tracks here that are somewhat jazzy, catchy, somewhat familiar, and definitely poke fun at the music industry as a whole. While a lot of other ska bands took a more “serious” tone, like The Slackers, these guys knew that they were having fun and therefore injected it into every track. From “Super Rad!” to “Attacked By Snakes”, there’s a lot of fun to be had with this record. The band never takes themselves too seriously, and you shouldn’t either.
It’s this type of fun that many bands just don’t have today. Stellar tracks on this record include “Super Rad”, “Fight Son”, “Cat With 2 Heads”, “Martian Girl”, “Idiot Box”, and of course “Powdered Milk Man”. This record is vocal heavy, and the horn section is great. The drums are muted a bit, and the guitars are a bit light, but other than that, “The Fury of The Aquabats” is a great record with a lot of fun ska, punk ethos. You can get this via amazon here. Enjoy it, treasure it, skank to it.
