Reel Big Fish – Keep Your Receipt

I Wanna Taranna Pt. 29: Sonic Boom #12 $2.99 Deal #5: Reel Big Fish – Keep Your Receipt

Man, back in the 90s I had a real phase of punk/ska, so naturally I loved Reel Big Fish. And you know what, I still do love ‘em! Their songs are super-smart, and they have the rocking-est horn section. Horn section! You know I’m sold!

This early EP has the single, Alternative Baby^, as well as a few other songs: Why Do All Girls Think They’re Fat?+, I’m Cool+, S.R.^, and a brilliant cover of Operation Ivy’s Unity~… with a wacky, phoned-in-sounding I Want Your Girlfriend To Be My Girlfriend+ attached as a wee hidden track. It plays more as a teaser for the full song that comes on a later album… Anyway, man, I miss the 90s’ hidden tracks.

This was a boppin’ rockin’ skankin’ great time. I owned this back in the day (no idea what happened to that copy) but I’m super-happy to get it back here now. Makes me want more Reel Big Fish again!
