Wheatus – Break it Don’t Buy it

Cursed / blessed with the monster hit ‘Teenage Dirtbag’ (classic pop toon!), Wheatus hadn’t really crossed my radar much until Late Cambrian mentioned they’d be touring together and then I was sent their album “Valentine” last week.  Well I don’t review albums through time constraints (My band are playing Galtres Festival on Saturday fuchristsakes), but it’s a more complex and many layered beast and I’m really enjoying track 4, especially the swoonsome violin (viola?)  Give some of the tracks a listen free on their youtube channel and perhaps some preconceptions about one-trick-ponyism will be dismissed!
