1990s

Kicks

(Rough Trade)



These three Scottish lads like to drink, get high, chase girls, and sit around the house doing nothing. It’s not all that different from how lots of other bands spend their day. And the music on 1990s’ second album isn’t a whole lot different either. There are plenty of pub-style sing-alongs, chunky-riff guitar rockers, and quick blasts of classic punk on Kicks. They even take a detour for a bit of hooky falsetto swing on “59.” But most of the album is stuffed with the sort of Britpop that made a buzz a decade ago. You know, back in the 1990s. –Michael Gallucci
