First up, McGRUFF. After listening to 20 minutes of retarded joke music, I was expecting more of the same. So I was a little surprised to find that THE WHEN McGRUFF WAS KING play actual songs. Actually it’s still retarded joke music, it’s just a little more charming this time around. TWMcGWK kind of reminds me of early PAVEMENT if they were completely wasted(er?) and brain damaged (not in a good way). However, I’d be surprised if these kids had ever even heard of PAVEMENT. In reality, they probably just raided their parents liquor cabinet and then tried to play rock & roll while running a tape recorder. The end of their second song does get a little ‘experimental’. It’s kind of like a less fucked, more adolescent version of THE DEAD C.


  1. that was a review for an old split cdr from the label ran by Breakdancing Ronald Reagan, the cdr featured him, TWMWK, and 50 Ways to Kill Me... if my memory serves me right... this was in the year 2007.

  2. i mean who posted it.
    it just says ... and its not clickable

  3. I'd assume steve posted it, its from an excerpt from the review.
