Toxic Pop / Firestarter

split - Capitalist Kids, the / Ex-Boyfriends, the 7"

$ 5.00

Two Texas pop-punk bands (the Capitalist Kids from Austin and the Ex-Boyfriends from McAllen) team up on one 7". From the Capitalist Kids you get a sappy love song, a protest song about the police state, and a cover of an '80s tune by the britpop outfit Squeeze. The Ex-Boyfriends give us one song about fun/hanging out, and two other poignant jams about the passing of a friend. Overall, both bands present a great balance of melodic pop and sloppy, aggressive punk.
