You want to like a band who state in bold print on the inside of their album cover, "We are not alternative!" And it's hard not to like Blue Flannel. When the band is on - as they are on "Havin' A Bad Day," they're sharp, they're funny and they rock. When they're off, which, unfortunately, they are too often, they're just another country/punk and, yes, alternative band whose music doesn't stand out from their counterparts. In other words, it isn't bad, it's just more of the same.
BLUE FLANNEL is: Derek Coile, vocals and guitar; David Montgomery, Guitars; John Barry, bass; Eric Talbot, drums.
A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
