If you are looking for music with soothing melodies and lyrics composed of syrup from a band that stimulates the mind and is pleasant to the ears...then New England's The Dimwits will not fit in with your listening criteria.
On the other hand, if you are seeking punk-flavored originality, wild beats, and songs with topics very few other acts, both mainstream and independent, rarely touch, then their brand new release will be right up your alley.
The album contains 16 tracks, of west coast style punk and old school hardcore, with subjects such as hot bartenders ("Beer Girl"), the odor of hippies ("Soap Not Dope"), along with the ubiquitous broken hearts songs, punk style, of course.
Add to the mix other interesting song titles such as "Nathan's a Man Whore," "Fat Pat Owes Paul $20," "Shannon's Got an STD," and "Serenity Now," just to name a few. All the songs are well written with superb creativity that would fit in with any genre, and with the fast-paced tempo changes, it isn't one of those overdone works, either.
In addition to 15 original songs, Hey Man, Good Set also contains a cover of the Black Flag hit, "Jealous Again," one of the CD's biggest gems
