Album Review: ANDY FRASCO AND THE UN

Happy Bastards (RUF RECORDS)

TODO alt text

Frat party singalongs for the Jägerbomb generation.

You should know exactly what you’re getting into when an album’s tracklisting includes such titles as Mature As Fuck and Blame It On The Pussy.

Rivalling only Spinal Tap for services to modern-day feminism, Andy Frasco & The UN are all about having a good time, all the damn time, much like a first-year student who has just left home for the first time and discovered the delights of snakebite and black. The pounding drums, horn section and singalong choruses mean you’ll be humming tunes like You’re The Kind Of Crazy I Like for weeks to come (whether you want to or not).

Like a round of tequila shots, Happy Bastards makes perfect sense to play on a riotous Friday night. But be warned: you might want to think twice about sticking this album on when the in-laws come over for a Sunday roast.
