Poster Children - Still cranking away.

Poster Children are one of those bands that have gone on for a very long time being underrated. With a healthy catalog of albums and more labels than most people can name, Poster Children have achieved a sort of underground cult status. Another one of those "best bands you've never heard of". Only they have gotten critical and loyal following success. But if you gauge success on the number of "hits" you've had, or the number of million selling albums you've sold, I think you'd be sorely let down as Poster Children just aren't commercial enough for bland tastes.

Blazing the trail of Post-Punk, Poster Children have kept it going since the late 1980's. Tonight's track is from their Sire/Reprise/Twintone period. Junior Citizen was released in 1995 - again, to good reviews and loyal following but not much as far as commercial success is concerned.

King For A Day is just one of the many strong tracks on this album. If you haven't discovered them already, there's a lot more where that came from. If you know who I'm talking about, this is just a gentle reminder there's an unbelievable amount of good music out there just waiting to be rediscovered.

Jus' sayin.
