"Rock Bottom" CD

BOO 1209 CD

If it wasn't evident enough on 1999's trashy and glamorous "Goodbye Private Life," The Kiss Offs don't just LOVE Rock & Roll, they have a destructive, co-dependant relationship with the genre and have written this album about, for and because of ROCK.

"Rock Bottom" directly addresses how Rock & Roll has saved their otherwise mundane, middle-class lives, only to make those lives less livable because the band members are poor, unemployed, dirty, continuously intoxicated, willfully destructive and often sleeping on floors.

"Prolonged Adolescence" captures the drunken nights roaming Austin on old bikes with friends to cheer on local bands. "Love You Hardcore" is about missing those bands when they inevitably break up and those friends when they leave. "The Freedom of Rock" and "Pleather Pantz" expound on the redemptive, disfiguring and humbling powers of Rock & Roll.

Other songs revert to the tried and true Kiss Offs' topics such as love, sex and, of course, kissing. As usual, the guitars skronk and spurt, the bass rumbles and belches, the keyboard warbles and wails and the drums pound like a polyrhythmic migrane.
