Sunday, July 19th: Fashionable Idiots proudly presents a new stomper/back from the grave....

In this era of blogs, instant virtual collection, and high school kids who are sometimes more informed than the maniac collectors of 25 years ago, its rare to come across a band with a truly refreshing and original take on punk rock. Well, if that's what you've been waiting for, then look no further than the Minneapolis Uranium Club Band.  Sure, there's lots of familiar touchstones on "Human Exploration" - you can picture these guys having a home on the Dangerhouse roster at times, and their nervous, herky jerky riffs lead one to assume they've spent a lot of time listening to Hardcore era Devo - but taken as a whole this record is an entirely different animal than the sum of the band's apparent influences.  Even though they have obviously put a lot more thought into their sound than your usual genre purists, this record rages with the best of them from start to finish.  Want to hear the state of punk rock art circa 2015? Look no further. -Steve Borchardt
