DESCRIPTION

As of 11/27/05 THE LAWRENCE ARMS had completed their 756th show. This fact, called from the stage amidst co-singer/bassist Brendan’s introductions of the band, has become an expected preamble to THE LAWRENCE ARMS’ live show. Anyone who’s seen them play knows that it’s a party, and Oh! Calcutta!, is a carefully crafted extension of that party made especially for you! Don’t get the wrong idea, this is a proper studio album, it just has something that a lot of albums lack, certain intensity. Compared to great three-piece bands like Jawbreaker, and the more contemporary Alkaline Trio, THE LAWRENCE ARMS further develop their frantic version of ornate Midwestern power pop with this release. Cohesion between co-vocalists (Chris and Brendan) makes for the band’s best album to date. Alcohol-induced stories of friendship and love, spattered with literary references, and jokes on pop culture permeate the lyrical content of the album. Even a nod to the 80’s author Judy Bloom is dished with “Are You There Margaret? It’s Me, God.”
