Alligator Gun - Onehundredpercentfreak
Oh man, this is a beauty. Absolutely ripping pop punk from mid 90s Milwaukee released on the same record label as Sick Of It All, Steve Vai and Tigertailz! No wonder this band disappeared quicker than a pork pie at a Weight Watchers meeting. It would seem psuedo major label Relativity tried to cash in on the pop punk boom of the mid 90s with this release but failed miserably, Alligator Gun were just not immediate enough to appeal to the MTV types looking for a new Offspring. It takes a few listens for the beauty of songs like 'Countdown by Fives' and 'Hundred Year Stare' to really sink in but once they do you will not get bored of them - believe me, I have been listening to this album for nearly 15 years now and I still put 'Countdown By Fives' in my playlists.
1. From The Top Of My Lung 2. Sinker 3. Lowell 4. Hundred Year Stare 5. Cut To Fit 6. Countdown By Fives 7. Johnson 8. Gantner 9. Strange That I Have Not 10. Curfew 11. Flinch 12. Square One 13. I Told You So
