Never heard of Showoff? You will. These guys have put together a very competent CD for Madonna's Maverick  record label. It is very close to a Green Day sound. This effort is full of  well-crafted, catchy, pop punk love-themed songs. I am  a total sucker for this type of music. The song "Fallen Star" is beginning to get some radio airplay, and I bet you anything it will pick up steam. "Ralphie" is also destined to be a radio hit. 

If you like Green Day, this CD is an easy bet.

Showoff : Graham Jordon on guitar; Dan Castady, drumming; Chris Envy doing the singing; Dave Envy playing bass, and - even though I'm not in the band, you can call me Penis Envy.

Rating Guide:

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.
