The Fad- Number 5/ Quit Your Band And Join The Fad
The Fad is a punk-ska band (with a hint of hardcore thrown in there) from Long Island. The band take peices from all their influences and manage to make it work. The high energy punk songs mixed with the dancy sing-along chorus ska songs make it hard to hard to stop listening. The lyrics on the older of the two eps, Number 5, are more directly political than the newer songs. Quit Your Band's production is a lot smoother and cleaner than Number 5.
