Dark Thoughts - Hate This Song
Dark Thoughts are a trio from Philadelphia who featured on here a couple of years ago with a song from their amazing S/T debut album (https://justsomepunksongs.blogspot.com/2016/07/dark-thoughts-no-more-soul.html) and now they're back with album number 2. First time around we were treated to a dozen frantic Ramones inspired songs in less than 20 minutes and this time around it's pretty much more of the same (definitely a case of if it ain't broke don't fix it). The members of the band are Jim Shomo (guitar/lead vocals), Amy Opsasnick (bass) and Daniel Cox (drums). The album is titled At Work and it's on Stupid Bag Records (US) and Drunken Sailor (UK/Europe) and it's available name your price on Bandcamp : https://dark-thoughts.bandcamp.com/
I could try and write a review of the album but that would just be wasting your time. You've either heard it and love it by now or you should stop reading and go download it immediately.
If 18 minutes of succulent punk rock seems a little daunting, ease yourself in gently with this 64 second prime cut. It's called Hate This Song....
