CPRA fan favorites The Follow Ups are back again with a response to “The Half Of It”. The Ramonescore boys are dropping, “…Don’t Like You Either” on 10/31/2019. We couldn’t be more excited! This release is currently in pre-order stage. For the best copy be sure to pick it up on vinyl here, https://punkdisorderlyrecords.bandcamp.com/album/dont-like-you-either.
Let’s take a look at the new record. The first track is, “Nancy Pelosi”. This song is hilarious with some great drum work, and pure Ramones core melodies. Damn do they know how to write tracks with addicting melodies. The next track is, “Love Letters From The Black Lagoon”.
Have you ever been in love with a person and felt not good enough? Based on the famous 1954 movie, “Creature From The Black Lagoon”. This track is written from the perspective of the monster.
“I’m lurking just below the surface,
Patiently waiting for you”
I love the theme and the killer backbeat. The midway guitar solo kills! The whoas are perfectly timed and well placed. “Crystal Lake” follows as a nod to, “Friday The 13th”. The track is like a frontal lobe assault of punk rock. If Jason Voorhees was a punk, this would be on his iPhone playlist. This track is not so much Ramonescore, yet still kicks ass with an original sound.
The next song is “Idiocracy”. The Ramonescore sound returns with a punch. This track may be related to the movie with the same name. Since the 1980’s the United States has become a “Consumer” based nation. Feeding off the nipples of corporate and political entities. We have allowed them to dictate morality and it will be the end of this country. Will you stand up or join the “Idiocracy”? Don’t believe me? Just take a look at our president.
The next track is “Depth Of Character” comes flying in with a heavy bass line. Are we as humans losing our depth? Are we losing the “Humanist” inside all of us? This track will be a fun one in the pit! “Hey Ho (The Ballad Of Razor Ramon)” follows with definite tribute to the Ramones, “Blitzkrieg Bop” and wrestler, Razor Ramon aka Scott Hall.
“Monsters” is next and from the “The Half Of It” EP. I still listen to this track frequently from my purchase back in 2019. The track is still a favorite, but I’m even more excited to listen on vinyl now. The minute I started the track I was like, “Hell Yeah”! “No Remedy” is the next song and also a favorite from, “The Half Of It”.
The last song is “Burn It Down”. Now I have to admit this song surprised me. This song seems to be one of the faster paced tracks. It’s sounds like 10 FT Pole with a skatepunk sound, leaving their traditional Ramonescore sound. I would love to hear more tracks like this! This is a perfect ending to an even better album!
Overall, The Follow Ups, “Don’t Like You Either” is 100% punk satisfying. Not only will it appeal to hardcore Ramones fans, but the pop/skate punks looking for something new. As stated above the record will be best listened to via vinyl. So hit that preorder link here, https://punkdisorderlyrecords.bandcamp.com/album/dont-like-you-either.
