The Liquor Giants are another band that I got all giggly over on my old blog (not gonna put up a link this time since I just did one in my last post so now it's played out), and if you were ever into Big Star/Badfinger-style guitar pop then this is a band for you.
The Liquor Giants is where Ward Dotson distilled the bar-band rock of the wicked great Pontiac Brothers into something that was way more power-pop, in the process coming up with as many impossibly stunning melodies as anyone ever has, including the aforementioned Chilton/Bell/Ham etc. Accordingly, "Play Along"/"Disgusted" is an amazing single; perhaps mastered a bit too loudly on the a-side, which is why I'm posting "Disgusted" first here, but no doubt these are two great songs (cool Art Chantry sleeve design, too).
For those keeping score at home: Spike Priggen, who played bass on this, was the frontman for one of Ct.'s first pop-punk bands, the TV Neats.
