The latest from Skip The Foreplay is called "Nightlife" and it's on Epitaph. Love the name - it reminds me of Animal Mother - the big jerk from "Full Metal Jacket," or maybe even Gunnery Sgt. Hartman when he's really mad. Hate the band - if I wanted to hear screaming like this, I'd give my ex a glass of rum and tell her that her kids are so mean even Chucky wouldn't play with them. You ever decided scream-o is music and not just screaming? Skip this band - not even close.
