A couple of months ago, my friends Diehard were playing an afternoon CMJ show. The band following them had a less-than-enticing name: Diarrhea Planet. A couple of the folks from Diehard advised me to stick around, and I’m glad that I did: DP’s sound recalled a number of irreverent, anthemic punk bands I enjoyed listening to ages ago. Turns out theirs is a sound that one can appreciate just as much at 35.
At the show in question, I picked up their album Loose Jewels; more recently, I wrote about it for Dusted.
(Also: that video’s probably NSFW. If you are going to listen, you might want to have headphones on.)
