Hives – A.K.A. I-D-I-O-T

I Wanna Taranna Pt. 28: Sonic Boom #11 $2.99 Deal #4: Hives – A.K.A. I-D-I-O-T

It’s the Hives. Go go GO! Man I love this band. Everything done tastefully and at 100 mph with no apologies at all for your eardrums getting damaged. This EP, which contains stuff from other albums I already own, has all the hallmarks of greatness the band is capable of… Take the title track~, here, then play it again. And again! Woo! We also have four other tracks, including Outsmarted+, Untutored Youth, Fever^, and Mad Man^.

The US version of this EP has an extra track, a cover of the Adicts’ tune called Numbers. Of course I’d like to have that one too, but I got this for $2.99 so I’m not too bothered. I didn’t need this EP. But I did. Because Hives.

    They have an album on the 1001 list – Your New Favourite Band, which was a mildly controversial inclusion as like you say in the footnote here, it’s a compilation (and the rule of the book theoretically was no comps).
    However, I’m pleased they broke their own rule, as also like you say, they go go go @ 100mph and it simply needed to be on the list because Hives!
