Chicago's Lawrence Arms are a gritty but clever punk rock trio that trace their beginnings back to 1999. These three punks/hunks/drunks blend East Bay punk with an intelligent and introspective Midwest sound. Take those musical influences and add a heap of bad television, some leftist literature, and exactly three cases of the cheapest most watery piss-beer you can muster, and you're just beginning to get an idea of what this band is about. Imagine Aaron Cometbus and the guys from Jawbreaker sitting around happily drinking Hamm's from martini glasses in a dank Chicago basemant whilst watching Press Your Luck or The Rockford Files. Their Fat Wreck debut, Apathy and Exhaustion, was pretty much the best independent record of 2002, so now you know. After almost two years of nonstop touring, they followed that up with their second Fat LP, The Greatest Story Ever Told, which is equally amazing. Now we got their new one, Oh! Calcutta which is turning out to be a real breakout record for the boys. These poor homeless bastards tour like the dickens, and if you like drunken punk rock, you'll really enjoy their live show. Go see 'em.
