Fourth release from State of Franklin, featuring Jody Gardner (guitars and drums) and Kevin Dunn (bass and vocals). Nine songs about these crazy times we are living in: friends dying from cancer, racists marching openly in the streets, assholes with too much power. Despite the evidence, they try to be optimistic. But this is definitely the angriest record they’ve made. Can’t really blame them.
1. I Wish I Was As Optimistic As Shonen Knife // 2. Kool Aid // 3. Born On The Westside // 4. It's Alright // 5. 1997 // 6. Retaining Wall // 7. Fuck You, Cancer // 8. Work In The Morning // 9. We're Not Defined By Our Mistakes
