China Drum - Goosefair mp3 album

Maybe every band should spend so long honing their skills; Goosefair is as close to spotless as post-Descendents punk-pop gets. Reminiscent of Australia's late the Happy Hate Me Nots and our own Agent Orange, China Drum attack with a super-clean edge, yet with plenty of firepower, and drummer Adam Lee's singing is crystal clear. His voice is nervy, brisk, and committed, and his energetic, grasping harmonies never miss the mark.

Can't Stop These Things, 03:01. Fall Into Place, 02:55. Biscuit Barrel, 03:49.

China Drum are a helluva band, irrespective of category. Get GOOSEFAIR and everything else you can find by them. Though this album, their first full-length, doesn't have the breadth and variety of its followup (the brilliant Self Made Maniac), it's still a great album of intelligent, passionate, melodic punk rock that sounds like the band members misspent their youth mainlining Clash and Husker Du records. If "Can't Stop These Things," "Simple" and "Meaning" don't set your rod a-twirl, you don't know the meaning of the words "rock 'n' roll.
