Exploding Hearts

The Exploding Hearts were an amazing band in the punk tradition of The Jam, The Buzzcocks, and The Clash. I say were because, unfortunately, 3 out 4 members of the band died in a van wreck on the way home from a show; only their bassist and manager survived. Nevertheless, they left behind one great album - Guitar Romantic, released in 2003. The album is great, start to finish. One reviewer described it as The Clash if Mick Jones had written all the songs. I only stumbled across the band/album by accident after downloading a free track from Nexus Underground. The track, Rumours In Town, is one of the standouts from an album that has no weak moments. Modern Kicks is also especially good. But really, get the whole album. I downloaded it from but iTunes has it as well.
