I was reviewing BNLX's EP #5 when I ran across the press information stating that their song, "Garbage Strike (It's Rubbish)" is a "well-done Smiths homage/parody". So instantly, I put on the song, and, well, I wouldn't exactly call it good. You can make up your own mind, by listening to the free song at: http://susstones.com/mainwp/
For those interested, BNLX is a band with Ed Ackerson (who used to be in a 90s band called Polara) and his wife, Ashley Ackerson (who used to be in The Mood Swings). BNLX is a very interesting project because the band's focus isn't making full albums, but concentrating on handmade EPs and selling them for $2.91 (possibly for just the materials). I don't know if it's working, but their shows are always packed. I'll be there to see them this Friday, with a Morrissey shirt on in silent protest.
