DORK APOSTATE - TOMBSTONES OF AN APPROPRIATED GENERATION

Described as "a thrilling mix of vandalism and crap karaoke", Dork Apostate's Tombstones of an Appropriated Generation attempts to do for the 90s what Culturcide's rare and legendary punk album Tacky Souvenirs of Pre-revolutionary America did for the 80s. Dork Apostate take us back to the Clinton era, the fabled End of History, when left-liberals gave up all pretence of opposing the profit system, when corporate America discovered that "alternative" was just another market demographic, when affluent nerdy white guys got fed up of people kicking sand in their faces and demanded to be taken awfully, awfully seriously. Tombstones takes the most representative music of the era — major-label alt-rock — and gleefully scrawls all over it. Puerile? Yes. Lazy? Yes. Extremely bad singing? Hell yes. But fun anyway — if best enjoyed in small doses.

Youtube was simply unable to cope with the volume of downloads, so Dork Apostate have gratefully turned to the generous hosting of kiwi6.com. This has the added benefit of allowing fans access to the rarely-heard 1995, and the all-new bonus track American Idiot Dream. For the first time, the songs are presented here with lyrics.
