Garage and surf.Surf and garage.These are the two most common terms associated with The Blank Tapes, I’d assume as they are the two sounds I hear coming out the most at various times throughout “Vacation”.
But let’s not forget that this can have qualities like Tom Petty and stoner type rock n roll.Even the song “Double Rainbow” has some trippy STP parts.
I really dig the song “Don’t Ever Get Old” and would totally buy it as a single on vinyl.(Someone call Burger Records and make it happen—they don’t return my phone calls anymore)Also, I really enjoy the line “We are making lots of new fans that are giving us cocaine”.So if you see The Blank Tapes live, bring them some cocaine you users.I wonder how many t-shirts I can get for my stash.Hmm…
Hunx and his Punx meets Tom Petty.Hunx and the Heartbreakers?Tom Petty and his Punx?Take your pick I guess.
