The Tim Version "Ordinary Life" LP


The Tim Version is Gainesville punk (from Tampa), with better jobs and a better van! Wrap 'em up in a tortilla with The Replacements, Radon, Leatherface, Hot Water Music, Motorhead, country legends of old, and a hefty dose of fast, bring-the-house-down punk rock, and you've got a mighty fine burrito! This here album is uptempo, adrenalin-charged and whiskey-soaked, but some of the finest moments are also found when they step back and let the full-on country songs breathe and move. You will swear you've heard these songs your whole life on a crackling AM radio. I'd say they do what they do because they don't know any better, but the lead crooner really IS a rocket scientist. The drummer plays traditional style (read: "holds sticks weird"), and is way better than he should be, the jerk! And between them, they have an encyclopedic knowledge of music, crossing all genres. If you are hearing The Tim Version for the first time, then this is a very good day indeed! Put on the record, pour yourself a cold drink, and escape from the heat for a little while here in the shade.
