Josh’s Musings – All Mod Cons

The Jam – All Mod Cons: 3.5 starsPrecon: Never heard of them. A Phish cover band?

Favorite Track: Billy Hunt (kickin’est) Mr. Clean (belongs in an 80’s movie) David Watts (good but a cover) Down in the Tube Station at Midnight (good story) To Be Someone (good chorus)
Least Favorite: The Place I Love (rips off Day Tripper)

I have a feeling this is another one of those “you gotta see em live” bands. The album is decent to good for the most part but is also tame and generic at times. Diet punk is a good way to describe it. Maybe it didn’t sound that way 30+ years ago, and it doesn’t even have to be a bad thing, but I just spent most of the time wishing they would kick it up a notch.

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.
