The Ray Gradys - Die Mindless Fools EP 
By Greenmuse

When I got this cd I knew it was either going to kick ass or suck the proverbial goat's butt, with the self printed CD label and cover art it could go either way. After the first bar of the first track I knew it was going to be good. How can anything with the A-Team theme song be bad? That's right the first track is a rockin version of the tune that was etched into the mind of nearly anyone my age or older. 

I could breathe easily knowing these guys weren't going to piss all over Johnny Thunders and Dee Dee Ramone's grave by doing a second rate cover of "Chinese Rocks". All the tracks are quality slices of punk rock, fast as hell and able to strip paint at 30 ft. (honestly I do have a wall with a CD player 30 ft away. If it doesn't strip the paint of the wall, it fails the gm test of goodness) fairly well written though Earl-y is in no danger of becoming the modern day Jello Biafra. But the band seems to have a bit of honesty that shines through the over peppering of the f dash dash dash word and really makes this band appeal to me. I hope they come to South Florida. I'd love to see em live. 

Pros: good old fashioned punk rock. 

Funny samples, especially the last one of the pissed off drummer. Probably why their drummer is listed as David Koresh on the inside sleeve. The hidden track this sample leads to is funny. 

Oddly catchy, I bet more than one person has gone about singing "some motherf*ckers just shouldn't be alive. " and  "you f*ckin pig I hope you die, hope you burn, I hope You fry in motherf*ckin hell with me" (see I told you they like the naughty words)

The A-Team theme song! 

Cons:
The vocalist sounds a little like the guy from Guttermouth (not bad, I just kept thinking about the tune "Gods Kingdom" by Guttermouth)

It's only an EP, I wish it was longer.
