Lately, there’s been a lot of hubbub, hooplah, and other words you haven’t heard since people were still doing the Charleston about Blink 182. While I don’t care too much (or at all really…) about their reunion or any album after “Dude Ranch”, all the news did successfully make me go back and to listen to their older stuff that I own.
One of my favorite, yet little known releases by Blink was a 3 song EP called “They Came To Conquer…Uranus”. The EP was released back in 1995 (right after Chesire Cat), and two of the songs can only be found on this EP, while the other was rerecorded for Dude Ranch.
Solid pop-punk before Blink-182’s music became all over produced and went after the luxorious 11 year old pre-teen market. Give it a listen, you may be surprised.
