Bummer Album of the Week: Wheatus – The Valentine LP

We all have songs we have lost it to then been embarrassed because of the song itself haven’t we? ‘Teenage Dirtbag’ is one such song, admit it – it was a great tune with a strong melody, loads of power chords and a chorus to rip you out of your seat. Wheatus were the band and they did pretty much fuck all else of any note, other than covering an Erasure song. Well here’s the news – the band are still going, despite their lack of ability. The latest album is ‘The Valentine LP’ and contains absolutely none of the aforementioned ingredients that endeared you to that song. A more thoroughly worthless and tuneless album I haven’t come across in some time – Bummer Album of the Week.
