And because we like to have something recorded in this century from time to time, please enjoy power pop comers One Like Son --the pride of Montgomery, AL. -- and "Start the Show," the appropriately monikered and utterly infectious, title track to their debut album.
I hear a hint of The Undertones in there, unless I completely miss my guess, and maybe a little Cheap Trick. In any case, I just dug this one, right off the bat, strictly on the aural level; however, when I got around to listening to the lyrics, I related like crazy (for obvious reasons) and dug it even more.
I should add that OLS member Stephen Poff, who kindly let me hear this in the first place, assures me that the album was recorded on an iPhone. Speaking as somebody who's only just gotten used to recording my own garage band on a laptop, I must admit to being somewhat astonished by this.
I should also add that you can -- and obviously should -- order the whole album over here.
And of course, as usual, a coveted PowerPop No-Prize will be awarded to the first reader who gleans the song's connection to the theme of tomorrow's Weekend Listomania.
