Listen: BMX Bandits / Wheatus WheatusBMXBandits.mp3
I spent a day with Brendan a few Saturdays back. We hadnâ€™t seen each other in ages, and were long overdue. He turned me on to a nice little vinyl shop in his neighborhood and great vegetarian cafe as well. A highlight was the 7â€³ single of â€˜BMX Banditsâ€™ that Wheatus had issued in the UK. Wow – is it great!
I was always annoyed that â€˜Teenage Dirtbagâ€™ hadnâ€™t come out on a 7. Despite it being a worldwide (3 million units) smash – it never did make it to the proper jukebox friendly format. Go see Wheatus anytime, anywhere. Theyâ€™re the real deal. I love them.
