F U Coachella

F U Coachella

– I’m sure Paul McCartney will want us to listen to his less-than stellar material from the last ten years, not the Beatles, not even Wings (I’d be happy with just a half hour Band on the Run jam session for god’s sake). – Henry Rollins does not equal Rollins Band.

Some of the songs on this album have a great 80s vibe to them – like if the synth sound of the 80s never happened and Mr. Moog started doing his thing a little later.
