SOURBELLY, Plasma Boy 7"/cassette (1995)

Since Angelle commented on "Half," I figured I'd post the rest of Sourbelly's best recording. Plasma Boy is a 4-song EP released on vinyl and cassette in 1995 (the rip here is from the cassette). Although Sourbelly went through a number of lineup changes over the years, singer/guitarist/songwriter Brian Hogarth was always there. When Plasma Boy was released, Sourbelly was...

Brian Hogarth - guitar, voice
George Bradley - bass
Mike Chase - drums

This one is pretty straightforward Ramones-style pop punk -- melodic, catchy, loud. A popular style at the time, even more so today -- and Sourbelly did it better than most.

Track listing:

1. Half
2. Untitled
3. Victim
4. Freak
