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.
