For all those who haven't understood the principle yet: behind this name 5 names are hidden that are all known as members of some of the most renowned bands of the scene: (Fat Mike/NoFX; Joey Cape/Lagwagon; Dave Raun/Lagwagon; Jake Jackson/Foo Fighters, Ex-No Use For A Name and finally Spike Slawson/Swingin' Utters). Those five guys just meet every now and then to cover some well-known songs. This time, after they went for the 70's and its most well-known melodies last time, they picked the 60's. 13 songs, featuring timeless classics like "Blowin' in the wind", "Wild world", "All my lovin'", "Stand by your man" and "San Francisco", all transformed into absolute Punk-pearls. That on this album no weak spot has to be lamented, is surely not only reasoned in the originals but also in Spike's impressive voice that gives the songs a totally new dimension. "Blow in the wind" from the first to the last minute is a fanstastic album that will quieten evyrbody saying 'what, another cover-album?'
