GOT BEAT UP
Like the Dead Milkmen before them, Weston finessed a lovelorn and suburban Philadelphia childhoodchasing girls at the mall, buying Sex Pistols records downtown, running from the copsinto a decades worth of teenage rebellion. One of the last victims of a major-label system that routinely seduced, signed, and then shelved bands whod outgrown the independent labels that nurtured them, the band broke up in 2001, ending an 11-year run. Three spontaneous shows in 2006 led to this years reunion tour. Anyone interested in feeling like a kid again should take note, and make time; as the band says: If youre not a teenager, you are tonight. With Scream Hello, Love Automatic, and General Miggs.
