The Revolutionary Plastics Hour: Volume Eighteen

This one’s a sort of duel between the forces of pop vs. punk; you might say it reaches its apex in the World/Inferno track, which combines the two. Or wait, is it the Dictators—or that stellar Superkools song, which sounds like a cover of a classic fifties rock & roll anthem? (Or the Danzig song, which is a cover of a fifties rock & roll anthem?*)

Anyhow, some vinyl-only classics from Rancid & Dillinger Four give the set some street cred, offsetting the literary pretensions of the reading from H.G. Wells’ When the Speaker Wakes. Enjoy it all!

* It’s one of many Lieber-Stoller classics, also performed (less werewolfily, but more hip-jiggily**) by Elvis.

** No typo; that’s “hip-jiggily,” i.e., indicating hips that get jiggy, as opposed to the more conventional “hip-jiggly,” which simply describes the jiggling of the hips.
