Josh’s Musings – New Clear Day

The Vapors – New Clear Days: 3.5 stars (a probationary 3.5, I want to come back and reevaluate)Precon: Other than Turning Japanese, I have no idea. Frenetic, poppy new wave I guess. I’ve always wondered what Totally 80’s album cuts sound like.

Favorite Track: News at Ten. Struck a chord with its super angstiness.
Least Favorite: Cold War. No bad tracks though.

The singer reminds me of Gruf Rhys from SFA. He must have been an influence on Gruf.
They also seem kind of Clashy.
They certainly aren’t lacking in subject matter. I think Somehow, at track 7, was the first non-statement song.
Letter From Hiro – Best penpal themed song ever.
Not as 80’s as I thought. Looking at the wiki, I see it was released in 1980, making it more a product of the 70’s, so I guess that makes sense. A nice RC surprise.

He may look like just an ordinary pizza flingin’ oven jockey, but no—this dude can lay the smack down with the bets of em’. He’s Josh, the "Brick Oven", and he’s the owner and head cook at Josh’s Joint. Who does he lay the smack down on exactly? His customers, that’s who. Order something the wrong way—catch a body blow. Ask for extra garlic in a rude manner—smack to your grill space. Walk into his joint like you own the place—your head goes through the soda fountain machine right quick. This motherfu*ker doesn’t mess around. He once gave a dude an atomic wedgie and stuffed his face in a toilet just for calling him “chief”. Come in his restaurant talkin’ bout, “can I get some garlic knots”, while he’s watching Judge Judy, and you just might get your ass handed to you with a side of Josh’s famous pizza sauce. If by some miracle you are able to duck his punches or fight off his attacks, you then might be invited to his afterhours fight club, which he holds in the back alley behind the restaurant.
