Pogos Going Steady
Singles Only, the Japanese-import collection of 7-inchers by the long-in-the-tooth Seattle foursome The Briefs traffics in the usual fist-in-the-air pogo pop we know all too well (check out
Benny's Got A Cigarette, We Americans and Medication and you get the general idea). For me, the Urine of Excitement starts to flow when they vow karmic retribution towards the musically reprehensible Bob Seger during the blazing sing-along Silver Bullet. If you can find a more stirring anthem this year, I'll eat my dayglo wraparound shades.
