The Evaporators

Honk The Horn

Mint

This garage surf rock crazy quartet hits straight out of Canadaland with an annoying but hilarious single. Keyboard grooves like The Beach Boys on speed, and surfin’ on PCP. The first side holds some of singer/keyboard player/annoying journalist type Nardwuar’s interview with Tommy Lee, sandwiched in between “Touch Wood” and “Honk The Horn.” The “Honk” song is actually more annoying than the first song, but it’s like you can’t not listen. It’s that kind of good bad, and if you want more, just flip the single.
