EP 1 – Bummer
The internet’s a funny thing nowadays. On the plus side, anyone who can’t get signed to a label can put their music out by themselves. The negative? ANYONE can put their music out. Even if it’s complete dribble. Case and point, this band called Bummer. If the fugly cover doesn’t turn you off immediately, the music will finish the job.
Apparently this band is another side project of Diarrhea Planet. Running on just listens and no real band information, it sounds like Jordan, Mike and Brent were all smart enough not to get involved in this one. Whoever’s left still can’t write a song that’s more than a minute and thirty. In retrospect, that might be a good thing, since if this thing was more than 5 minutes long total, my ears might have actually started bleeding.
The lyrics are annoying. They sound like the kid just started writing, but by the sound of it, he already thinks he’s Henry Rollins. Repeating the same line over and over again is only cool if the line’s good and if you don’t do it EVERY SONG. Seriously, with all the money their parent’s pay to Belmont, you think these kids would have learned something. Guess that was a bad investment.
I could go on, but I think you guys get the idea. Avoid this thing like the plague. However, if you really do want to torture yourselves for under 5 minutes (I’ll give you credit if you can make it past the first two songs), check out the album below. It’s for free if you want to download it, but no one who has even a decent idea of what music is would want to.
Don’t believe me or think I’m being a prick (well, more than usual)? You be the judge and jury then. I guarantee you’ll want to be the executioner soon after.
