The Queers

Later Days And Better Lays


Early stuff from The Queers. The first fourteen songs are post- Grow Up demos recorded to give Ben Weasel a taste of their new songs. Recorded straightforward and raw, this is great for those of us who enjoyed their stripped down punk rock days. Shift from that to the songs from the Bubblegum Days 7” and a version of the syrupy pop “I Can’t Get Over You” and you have the full spectrum of changes this band has gone through. There are a few other odds and ends as well. A nice blast from the past, especially considering their last full-length, Punk Rock Confidential , was so bland and boring. Keep digging up old stuff like this and re-releasing it!
