"The K.G.B." (Dreamworks Records)

Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton

Watered-down ska that will make you run screaming for your Mighty Mighty Bosstones CD. An occasional crunchy guitar here and there and a melodic sign of life every once and while, but mostly just a bunch of lukewarm tunes that kinda lay there, like water balloons whose water has all leaked out.

Again, get out your old Mighty Mighty Bosstones CDs instead.

KGB is: Toby - lead vox, rhythm guitar, keys; Moses - electric bass, vocals; Ben Kramer - keys, vox, trumpet, vibes; Johnny Genius - lead guitar, vox, fun machine; Tom Travesty - drums, vox, valve trombone.
