So it goes that this CD has been sitting around for months. From summer 2002 to be precise. I lost my mobile months ago, and only recently got round to cancelling the contract. I needed $10 to order the new Copperpot ‘Tired of Waiting’ CDEP, but that took me months to get the money and send for the CD. My sister wants some money from me. I can’t even remember what it is for, but she assures me I owe her. If I remember, I better write her a cheque after I finish this…yeah right sure. I’ll get round to everything one day. So here’s one to cross off the list…

‘Yeah Right Sure’ starts off well enough with ‘5.65 keep breathing’, a track which would have sat nicely on 1997’s classic ‘Domestic Violence’ 7” (which is included as a bonus on this CD). The trouble is, by the time I had listened to the remainder of this album it is apparent that HGS haven’t delivered the record I was hoping them to. ‘5.65 keep breathing’ aside, there are no real standout tracks just some pretty average pop-punk. The final 4 bonus tracks are taken from the ‘Domestic Violence’ 7” and one listen to ‘Input=Output’, ‘Inhaler’ or ‘Ignore the Screaming’ and I wish HGS had made an album full of these songs. Shame.

What the fuck is it with pirates that seems to attract the most vacuous, execrable human beings on the planet ?
