REVIEW: The Copyrights/Brokedowns


On the cover a gorilla with laser eyes, you know something cool is inside. No Idea Records brings us a split from the Copyrights and Brokedowns. First lets look at the Brokedowns side, I don’t care for these guys. The first song isn’t good and it gets worse as it goes on, but for the first half of the song it wasn’t so bad I wasn’t willing to give them a second chance so I listened on. My first realization was the choice to go on was a mistake. As I listened to the Brokedowns song I debated whether it was too far across the room to go lift the needle off the record and spar me further despair. Luckily you can flip this record over and on the other side the Copyrights have a couple songs. The first song totally sounds like a Dopamines song, and that’s not a bad thing at all. The second song kind of has the same Dopamines type sound but with more Copyrights in it. Both songs are well worth the price of admission for this split.

The Copyrights – I’d Probably Rather Die Or Something

If you don’t recognized the name McKinley Morganfield, don’t feel bad, most people don’t. Better known as Muddy Waters not only does this guy have a cool name, hes put out some of the best blues tunes ever made. He put out his first single in 1941 and his last in 1981 the only thing that could stop him from making music was his death in 1983. Over the years he racked up six Grammy Awards, five Blues Foundation Awards, has four songs in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. He’s also been inducted into the Blues Foundation Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and even had his own Postage Stamp. One of the greatest to ever sing the blues in 1941 and that stands true in 2009.
