Sadplant The End of Fun

Connecticut’s prolific favorites are back with a new release. I know that it’s been like 16 minutes since the last new release, but hell if you got the goods, rock with it, right?

The End of Fun brings 12 new tracks of snotty punk rock songs of angst, despair, guts and a slight slight glimmer of hope. Along with that, if you’ve been following this band at all, you get a lot more synchronicity in the music. While the recording still has a garage edge to it, the music is more polished and I think the mix is finally right.

I try not to gush, but this band really makes me proud. They, like the rest of us have to deal with every waking day, but through daily struggles of life and lineup changes (new drummer) they continue to produce. I’m not sure I need to say much more.

Speaking of the lineup, Sadplant currently consists of Benny Social on guitar and vox, Amy Wappel on bass and box and Gabe Fonseca on drums and vox as well. The bottom line is that Sadplant rocks. The underline is that if you get bored with the last release, you get a new one in minutes.

On a side note, I totally dig male / female point / counterpoint vocals. … makes me think of the old school track Oki Dogs from Youth Gone Mad or Hopeless Romantic from Bouncing Souls (or heaven forbid, Renee Zellweger in Capital Records. … I kid, I kid. That movie rocks.)

Cheers!

  1. Sadplant has been an influence in CT Underground Scene for years and years. I remember the first time I saw them in concert I immediately fell in love with the band. Always will be at a Sadplant show as long as I can make it. I try and see them as much as possible. All of the members are so relaxed and laid back and always will take a minute to say hi, very positive and social. Not something you see every day.
