First the sarcastically genius minds responsible for milking every
underage dollar possible from The Vans Warped Tour® and
their subsidiaries cheat us by cutting off U.S. Bombs mid performance
with Duane Peters mid-splits. Now a day late and a dollar short,
we are treated to a messy and misdirected performance from Die
Hunns feat. Corey "Nashville Pussy" Parks. The
shoddy mix puts crap-ass vocals from Peters and Parks way up front,
while the musical saving grace is buried in the background. What sounds
like a tribute to G.G. Allin, it lacks in both style and substance,
leaving only substance abuse. Not content to squeeze out lackluster
originals, Die Hunns turn in a pitiful take on Jonathon Richman's
"Roadrunner" and an unforgivable slaughter of The Chamber
Brothers' classic "Time Has Come Today." And a Van
Halen cover isn't even ironically cool to square-heads now.
Things start to pick up around "Tragedy" and "Wild,"
but what's this, a fadeout on a live recording? Are you shitting me?
This aint EL fucking O lip-synching on American Bandstand. This is
punk rock dammit! Viewing the playback on the DVD portion, the fadeouts
hide the fact that the audience could give two shits. And while Peters
does get into his usual spastic acrobatics, there's just something
missing. Oh, that's right, Peters is in love - L-U-V. We get the lowdown
in an interview with him and Parks gushing about their on the road-
off the road romance. I can't say I hope they start shooting smack
again, but for the sake of good music someone break these two up.
