Goodbye Ellston Avenue. Usually Aaron writes most Pinhead Gunpowder music, even though he is a great writer it's nice to get some samplings from the other memebers too. This release is less of the "pop" and more of the "punk" sound. It's a must have for any fan of the SF East Bay sound.
Pinhead Gunpowder's full-length (if you consider 24 minutes to be full-length) Goodbye Ellston Avenue often sounds like Green Day without a producer - which isn't a bad thing. All the songs have a certain first-take rawness, and the recording quality is appropriately gritty. Billie Joe Armstrong handles most of the singing here, which ensures a certain amount of pop sweetness, but when co-vocalist Bill Schneider takes the mic, his less tuneful shouts offset Armstrong's melodies nicely.
