"Richmond power-pop torchbearers invoke The Jam, Undertones, and Wire with an emphasis on promoting a good time." -Richmond Times Dispatch
"Lovers of power-pop will rejoice." -soundsofrva.org
The latest and greatest hardcore punk offering from Central Virginia. Sounds rooted in golden era HC punk filtered through modern depression and alienation.The four brainfried individuals behind FRIED EGG have also done duty in CRETINS and ANIMAL PLANET so the playing here is no slouch -- tight, fast, and to-the-point. The composition of the these tracks shows a bit more depth as well, with screaming guitar leads and fuzzed, walking bass lines jumping out at you, reminiscent of recent groups like Brown Sugar and Wiccans. Have a taste of the EGG and see for yourself.
