Even in Blackouts
“Myths and Imaginary Musicians”
(Panic Buttons / Lookout!)

Acoustic pop-punk from ex-Screeching Weasel bass player John “Jughead” Pierson. ¬†With female vocals over what are still fairly predictable, classic East Bay style pop-punk arrangements, Even in Blackouts strongly recall Velocity Girl, Small Factory, Discount and numerous late 80’s, indie, college rock bands. ¬† Covers of songs here by Screeching Weasel, Opertaions Ivy and, surprisingly, YAZ.
