Snuff - Long Ball To No-One E.P.
I was watching some TV music channel the other night, and the video for 'I Think We're Alone Now' as covered by Tiffany came on. I was 10 when she released that song, and I was a big fan, probably not entirely because of the tune itself. Those of you old enough to remember will understand. Whole lotta denim.
Anyway, the point is that Snuff did a cover of that track on their debut LP, 'Snuff Said'. This is the connection. Thanks for bearing with me. This being a singles blog, there is no place for that album, but there is always space for some good old-fashioned pop-punk, in this case from 1996. Because it's a proper EP, from the good old days, it has four tracks, and all of them are well worth a listen. 1: Hammond/brass-tastic pop joy; 2: bass-tastic high-speed joy; 3: trumpet-tastic shouty joy; 4: syncopation-tastic great-name joy. Enjoy!
