The Bananas-New Animals LP/CD
My band was on tour with The Bananas once and at one show they were pushed to do a sound check. I was eating in another room downstairs when i heard them start. All of the sudden i caught myself wolfing down my food very fast like i was in a hot dog eating contest. The reason was cos it sounded like i was missing a huge fun party. When i finished i ran into the room they were playing and it was empty,like most sound checks are. Even from a faint thump street blocks away they have a spirit and energy that many other bands will never come close to even pretending to have. Their first 3 albums are mainstays in my stereo and never seem to lose charm or fail the test of time. Their 4th album, “New Animals”, promises even more longevity! Some of their best songs like “Gentrification for Dummies”, “Radioaction”, “National Anthem”, and “Roly Poly” call this record home. Damn I’m glad they exist!
Also they are on tour most of may. click on their link on the right to see dates!

    New Animals may be the Banana’s best album yet. It has a great mix of fast punk and catchy melodies. Thank you Recess for spreading the word about mind-blowing awesomeness that is The Bananas.
