A Man’s Not a Camel

Fat Wreck Chords

These dingos mostly follow the standard recipe for melodic hardcore these days (top secret recipe: add NOFX/Lagwagon/MXPX or similar bands and microwave for 30 seconds). These Aussies did surprise me with what sounds like a Hoodoo Gurus influence on “You Are Not My Friend.” A scathing analysis of today’s society can be found in songs like “Never Had So Much Fun,” “Let’s Drink a Beer,” and “I Don’t Need Your Loving.” The guys and girls attending the Warped Tour are bound to love this fast and poppy stuff. I can see the band’s logo on the little girlie T’s already…
