Honey Wagon - tape (1994)

Shades of Big Drill Car, Green Day, and the Doughboys exude on much of this cassette left behind by a long departed Charleston, SC trio, but those comparisons are truthfully a bit vague.  Vague if only by virtue of the fact that Honey Wagon weren't quite as aggressive or innovative as any the aforementioned.  A little unripened as well, but "Madelaine," "Vitamin H" and "Best Boy" were sufficient enough to make a believer out of me.  Total DIY indie rock with a healthy dollop of punk-pop sauciness for good measure.  A hearty thanks to Gerald for sharing this tape.

Thanks for checking in Pete. I'm sure those South Carolina winters are real brutal ; )

I haven't listened their music and they have a great review on Online pharmacy reviews. Thanks for the recommendation. I will give it a try.

I caught this band at the Music Farm around 1995. Great band-not a lot of these types of bands, then and now in Charleston, SC.
