GREEN DAY - Shenanigans LP

SGD 44.00

Label: Reprise Shenanigans is the companion piece to 2001's International Superhits. Where that compilation collected Green Day's singles, this rounds up the B-sides and such ephemera as soundtrack compilations, gathering the best for a 14-track trek through the band's alternate history. No acoustic stinkers. No Live And Unrehearsed At K-ROQ radio sessions. No ropy early demos. No remixes. Just Green Day, playing solid, dependable, familiar idiot-savant punk-rock. The nervous-breakdown shiver of ‘Desensitized’ rocks out like the best stuff on the underrated ‘Insomniac’, while ‘Don’t Wanna Fall In Love’ is a frothing caffeine overload that tears by in 90 feverish seconds. A curious cover of The Kinks‘ ‘Tired Of Waiting For You’ works, just about. And the one new song included here, ‘Ha Ha You’re Dead’, proves Green Day, broadly, still have it: a chugging playground nose-thumbing that finds these three fathers stubbornly refusing to grow up.
