What's really Going On?!? (Kung Fu Records)
Assorted Jelly Beans

By Brent Starkey

Assorted Jelly beans is a smart-ass trio playing ska and punk, singing about "Dead Neighbors," "Entry Level Positions" and, of course, "Parents": "When this all began / our parents couldn't understand, / didn't want to listen to their demands / tried to explain this is all we know / don't want to be a part of your silly freak show." It's fast, it's fun, it's sometimes even weird ("Loadie Mission," "Booshduckdown") and it's punk. The kids will love it. I like it: a good CD.- buy, kids, buy.
