OOP Corner: Doughboys - Crush

"Remember when the Doughboys played Gilman and they broke up on your lawn?"

I have a feeling that more than a few people that love singing along to "Dull" by Samiam have no idea who the Doughboys were. Well they were a pop-punk band from Montreal that were contemporaries of Samiam, they actually got started a few years before Samiam and before that vocalist John Kastner was in the hardcore punk band the Asexuals. The Doughboys early albums are fantastic records that are very much comparable to Samiam, however this is a little different. By 1993 the band had just signed to a major label, A&M, and their sound became more polished but honestly this is probably their best album. Their next LP, Turn Me On, came in 1996 and it was such a grab for commercial success it was shameful and guitarist Jonathan Cummins also thought so because he left the band. That kind of spelled the end for the band. This is sadly out of print but you seriously have to here it, so here I am. Other rips are floating around the net but they are all rubbish quality whereas this is a high quality rip from my own collection. Enjoy!
