30 Foot Fall "Divided We Stand" Review

This appeared in issue 13 of Married Punks, published in 1998.  The CD was sent to me to review.

30 Foot Fall Divided We Stand

This, 30 Foot Fall's first album (re-released), kicks the ass of its last one (Acme-143), though that was good, too.

Divided We Stand is pure, raw punk that reminds me of gems from the late '80s.  A little social and a little silly, this CD makes you wonder why the band took the more melodic approach that it has now.  Hell, it even gets a little hardcore with "Everything is Gonna Stop."  Also, not to be missed, is the cover of Billy Idol's masturbation epic, "Dancin' With Myself," that is great, but goes on too long.  There's also a few swipes from other notables, including the (wannabe rockstars) Dead Milkmen.

It's a happy day when something this good comes my way.
