THE METHADONES "Gary Glitter"

7" single











PURCHASE


THE METHADONES
Gary Glitter b/w Over The Moon

Chicago punk rockers, fronted by Dan Schafer, a/k/a Danny Vapid from Screeching Weasel, Riverdales, Sludgeworth and The Mopes.  Musically, a pop punk tribute to the glam of Gary Glitter.  Lyrically, a scathing account of Gary's exploits as one of the most notorious from the U.K.'s ever-expanding collection of (in)famous pedophiles.  How much longer until Weird Al does a parody of this song, called "Ben Weasel," about how you can't punch little girls, don't you see?
Both of these tunes could fit easily into the repertoire of The Mopes or Riverdales...so, if you love that stuff, there's no reason you won't dig this.  Fans of the Weasel crue probably won't be disappointed either.
