Ergs - Upstairs/Downstairs - New CD
NEW Dirtnap Records! Lots of bands dream of becoming a great punk band, a great pop band, or a great hardcore band. But the truly great bands, the ones that come along and alter the course of music, can never be pigeonholed into just one genre. You don't want to listen to the same type of music all the time, so why would a band wnt to drone through songs that all sound the same? The Ergs have the talent to play outside the lines. The New Jersey-based trio draws influences from the strongest sections of the SST catalog, pop punk in the vein of both Ramones and Descendents, country, and even jazz. When listening to The Ergs, prepare to have your definition of pop punk challenged. As a band, everything goes; As listeners, everyone wins.
