Most of the stuff I post about is either skulls/death/brutality hardcore or chin-stroking electronic stuff.
Mean Jeans are the total polar opposite. Beer, pizza and Ramones.
Dead simple pop punk is surprisingly hard to do. Or I guess sit must be as there's a billion shitty 7"s littering sale boxes in record shops and free boxes in distros. Mean Jeans seem to have that little bit extra that makes it work.
