Pietasters - Awesome Mix Tape #6 Awesome Mix Tape #6
Pop New - LP 80418 Hellcat
Sealed 1999 Original. “Awesome Mix Tape #6 Is A Perfect Example Of An LP That Is As Derivative As It Is Enjoyable. Greatly Influenced By British Punk/Ska/Reggae Outfits Like The Specials, Washington, D.C.'S Pietasters Aren't Innovative Or Groundbreaking -- This Album Often Sounds Like It Could Have Come Out In The Late 1970s Or Early 1980s Instead Of The Late 1990s. But Being Retro Isn't A Bad Thing If You Do It With Soul And Integrity -- And On Rugged Yet Melodic Items Like "What I Do," "Can't Stand It" And "Chain Reaction," The Pietasters Deliver The Goods. Awesome Mix Tape #6 Is Superior To Most Of The Punk/Ska Releases That Came Out In The 1990s Because The Pieholetasters Don't Come Across As A Band That Decided To Jump On The Punk/Ska Bandwagon Five Minutes Ago. In The Late 1990s, It Wasn't Uncommon To Find Young Bands That Took Up Punk/Ska Right After Hearing No Doubt Or The Mighty Mighty Bosstones But Had A Limited Knowledge Of Both Punk And Ska -- Many Of Them Had Never Even Heard The Specials, The Clash, Or Bad Manners, Let Alone The Skatalites Or Toots And The Maytals. But When Awesome Mix Tape #6 Is Playing, You Get The Impression That The Pietasters Know Their Stuff And Have Spent A Lot Of Time Listening To Not Only Punk/Ska, But Also, The Classic Ska, Rocksteady, Reggae, And Soul Music Of The 1960s. Recommended.” Alex Henderson, AMG.... more details
