Oh Minneapolis, how I wanna come visit you! See the sights, eat the food and check out your bands. Not in the least Off With Their Heads who just released “From The Bottom”, an album that hit me about as hard as a surprise left hook can when thrown by some drunk dude at a show. Come to think of it, this could very well happen at a Off With Their Heads show. It’s not hard to imagine a crowd all riled up by these incendiary songs while drinking and belting out the choruses along with the band.

With gritty yet melodic vocals spitting out well-written lyrics over a sturdy poppunk foundation, it’s easy to think of that other Minneapolis act, Dillinger Four covering streetpunk tunes (“Until The Day…”).

“From The Bottom” is a vintage No Idea release and just a very solid album overall. Check ‘em out live when you get the chance and share a beer with ‘em later on… I doubt they’ll decline.

Lacking the talent to actually play in a band, Tom decided he would write about bands instead. Turns out his writing skills are mediocre at best as well.
