Yup, even punkrockers grow old. Born and raised on Fat Wreck, Lagwagon has been dropping releases for twenty years now. If they haven’t changed their sound by now, I think it’s fair to say they never will.
And so the songs on “I Think My Older Brother Used To Listen To Lagwagon” sound like, well Lagwagon. They might have slowed down a little here and there and they may never sound as good as they did back in the day but the songs on here are definitely a more than worthy addition to the band’s ever-expanding catalog.
And if you’re curious what some of these songs sounds like stripped down to an acoustic setting, go pick up Joey Cape’s solo album “Bridge” which is out now as well.
