Boston Spaceships: Headache Revolution 7"

Happy Jack Rock Records [2008]

Fire Drills Review:

Like we have to tell you that Robert Pollard moves fast and why should his new band the Boston Spaceships be any different. Headache Revolution is the first single to be released from their new forthcoming sophomore album The Planets Are Blasted. Three of the four tracks are out right rockers with crashing drums and crunchy guitar while "Dementia Is Rising" recalls the glory of the GBV lo-fi days. The longest track here is 2:22 and all three b side tracks are not included on the album. This 7 inch is limited to 500 copies so it is definitely worth picking up if you are a completest!

Key Track: " 7 Is The Hot Noose"

Band With Similar Fire: The Who
