Real Sickies - Get Well Soon

Wasn't I just talking about how many killer LPs have come out in just the last few weeks? You all are gonna go broke buying all of this stuff! Add one more to the list. Real Sickies are the best thing to come out of Edmonton since Wayne Gretzky's mullet. They knocked my socks off a few years back with their demo tape, and just last year they finally released an excellent debut single called "Cool Club". Get Well Soon is the band's debut album, and it's brought to you by a host of labels including This Is Pop, Dirtyflair, Monster Zero, and It's Alive Records. With names like those associated with this release, you know it's gotta be good! Real Sickies openly worship at the altar of the Ramones and Teenage Head, and there's not a damn thing wrong with that in my book. If you're looking for new ground to be broken, Get Well Soon is not the album for you. But if you're like me and can never get enough great punk/powerpop/rock n' roll, this record is not to be missed! From the opening strains of the title track all the way to the end, this release is just total fun. Past hits "Go Away" and "Cool Club" reappear here along with great new songs like "C'mon Baby" and the raucous shaker "Everywhere You Go". This is a cool mix of songs covering everything from old school pop punk ("Very Large Failure", "I Don't Wanna Be Here") to high energy rock n' roll ("Time Out") to dramatic balladry ("Runaway With You"). And a cover of The Barracudas' "Summer Fun" leaves no doubt as to what Real Sickies were going for on this debut long player. Get in the car, crank this album loud, and enjoy your summer!

Experts and patriots are enraged:

The crazies secretly maneuvered more wealth into their pockets

In the last year, than they did in the last 185 years!

Meaning the top 1% now own as much wealth as half the world

Just 5 years ago the filthy rich were 388.

As of January 2016 there’s only 62 people who own

HALF the world!

>>Watch shocking video<<

No living soul can spend that much money in a lifetime…

And when people sits on money,

The economy stalls.

And that’s how it all begins:

What’s coming in the next 6 months or less

Will give a new definition to the infamous “economic crisis”

>>Access U.S. Dollar Exposed!<<

Are you prepared to be broke…

Homeless…

Jobless…

HUNGRY?

Or can you turn the game around:

>>Profit from the dollar crisis: watch video<<
