The return of Everett True | 95. Some Jerks

I have a theory that Vivian Girls are more similar to Ramones than given credit for. Not only in their sound – and the fact they were the first band to truly get Ramones since Shop Assistants – but also in the way they blazed a trail through the 2000s, inspiring dozens – possibly hundreds – of […]
