Burdocks I Have A Million Friends

Though they'd probably cringe at the classification, the Burdocks make progressive rock cool again, replacing the stale rock theatrics and cheesy songwriting with college boy charm and authenticity. Imagine the boys from Thrush Hermit covering a Gabriel-era Genesis song, or the Superfriendz dropping the pop thing to get more "artistic." Although this sounds like a precarious proposition that could end in disaster, somehow the Burdocks pull it off confidently. The band never loses hold of their hooks, despite the continuously changing structure of their songs, which is a fairly impressive feat that few can pull off. The Burdocks were definitely schooled in rock and roll, but it's probably safe to say that they spent most of their time doing equations with the gifted kids at recess while the rest of the class were out fooling around.
