SQUIRTGUN- "Mary Ann" 7"
NOSEBLEED- S/T 7"EP
MR. T EXPERIENCE- "Tapin' Up My Heart" 7"
"The Mr. T Experience is one of those bands that, like Sewer Trout and Blatz, get overlooked when set against the great Lookout! Records back catalog. While Screeching Weasel, the Queers, Operation Ivy and Green Day get all the hype, the rest of the halcyon days of the label seem to get lost. If you know old Lookout! Records, and any other stuff by MTX, you know what to expect. This is classic Ramones-influenced pop-punk. The thing that sets this apart from bands like Screeching Weasel and the Queers is the “intellectual” humour. But, you still are getting the genre-expected songs about girls and love. “Tapin’ Up My Heart” starts with Dr. Frank talking, and then it goes into your general “guy likes girl who does not like guy” territory. The next track, “My Stupid Life” is a good old-fashioned song about being bored and frustrated with how your life turned out. There is also a third (hidden) bonus track not mentioned on the cover, “How’d the Date End” (an acoustic joke song about the show Love Connection). So, in closing, if pop-punk is your thing, pick this up. It is a great example of how great Lookout! Records used to be." Lookout! Records. Brand new old stock!
