I live in Nashville and I remember seeing these guys several times. In fact, come to think of it it was my first show I ever went to in 99' I think. I remember seeing them this one time and the singers brother got a bottle broken over his face while he was in the crowd and the singer came off stage and got the kid that attacked his brother or friend in a headlock and nearly beat the living shit out of him.

That was my introduction to punk rock shows.

I loved this band back in the day. They used to be on Honest Dons/Fat Wreck and were great live. The energy was top notch. After they broke up, I think Phillip and Matt played in the Queers too. They are back together now with a different lineup, but it doesn't even come close live to the lineup that played on the albums.

They were the opening band for my first, and still craziest concert I've ever been to. It was them, Anti-Flag, NFG and Less Than Jake at the old Web Theatre in Phoenix in I think March 2001.

During the Teen Idols set my friend got hit in the head with a glass beer bottle and missed the rest of the show getting his head stitched. Anti-Flag fans were throwing firecrackers at NFG during their set (to the point where I believe Chad politely offered the culprits the chance to meet him out back and throw fireworks at him as much as they want after the show, just don't hit any kids down front), and LTJ was delayed about half an hour by a balcony people vs. downstairs people beer bottle and chair fight.

Plus, all the bands sounded good.

Saw these guys open for Less Than Jake a couple of times. I really enjoyed them, but never got around to picking up any of their albums. I do have a handful of songs on my iPod from comps and whatnot. Looks like emusic has 3 of their albums up on their site (S/T, Pucker Up, and Full Leather Jacket)...which one should I check out first?

I' have been listening to these dudes forever, I remember seeing them back in day at tune in studios in New Haven... Probably one of the best shows, I have been too, and the band let me in for free, because I helped them carry their gear in, and was one of the few people there early to see them.

Pucker up was a great album, and I still listen to their music just about every week! It's awesome seeing this band get some coverage here. And this is like the first time I've posted about anything in here, because in my opinion not much in here is worth commenting on.

I hope the Idols next album is great.

Their version of When You Say Nothing At All is one of my favourite cover songs of all time. Definitely worth checking out.
