Doc's New Music Pick - The Pink Spiders

Doc's New Music Pick - The Pink Spiders

New Music Monday. Back in 2006 I stumbled across an album called “Teenage Graffiti” by a power pop band called The Pink Spiders. This is back in the day when cars actually had CD players. I mention this because this disc spent A LOT of time in that CD player on constant repeat. In particular were songs like Little Razorblade, and Modern Swinger. Anyway, I thought for sure this three-piece (now quartet) would “make it big.” Unfortunately, that did not happen for them. They released a third album (as the aforementioned one was their sophomore disc) but that too, failed to really catch on. From what I could gather, they went on a short hiatus, changed the lineup a few times, and then released their fourth album in 2018, ten years after their third release. Let's fast forward to today, when they just released their newest and fifth called “FREAKAZOID.” I think this tune may be the second single from that album. They will be touring later this year supporting Everclear and The Ataris. Check them out if you get a chance.
