They didn't have a songwriter quite as good as Paul Westerberg, but for sheer rock action, sweaty passion, and beer-addled fun, the Pontiac Brother deserved a level of popularity commensurate with that of their friends and kindred spirits the Replacements. This two-fer release brings together their second and third albums (from 1985 and 1986), and it sums up their blend of hard rock swagger and regular-guy attitude pretty brilliantly. Dude Gnarly, you are missed.
