top of the saturday to you all! one of my favorite bands in my 20s was the poster children and their brand of high energy power pop mixed with a whole bunch of other styles. admittedly, its been a few years since i popped a poster kids record into my ear drums, but look back on them very very fondly. maybe, the release of rick’s moniker thoughts detecting machines release work the circuits, due out on march 16, will jumpstart getting back into em? definitely looking forward to giving this a spin. if you’ve never checked out the poster kids, and use spotify, theres a few of my favorite records down there or pick something up via amazon
