The Fever : Bridge & Tunnel
This news just in! New York isn't dead yet!
Suddenly, in the year of Our Pete 2004, New York seemed about as alive as your average rapping crackhead. And then, SCREEECH! Jesus, Maude, did you see THAT? I coulda swore that was The Clash, Devo and Gang Of Four bike-chaining each other in a vicious East Village gang brawl! ‘Bridge & Tunnel’ – a front-runner for punk-pop single of the year that was criminally wasted as a bonus track on last year’s ‘Pink On Pink’ EP – is a frenzied battle-cry of the weekend Manhattanite and a bit like being knocked down by a speeding truck full of Psychedelic Furs albums. It’d make you pogo at your own funeral.
