The Ideal Fathers have a fresh, danceable, well-crafted take on post-punk
. They have a freshly recorded, yet-to-released EP
that's damn good. What they don't have is a drummer, and that's holding them back from capitalizing on those first two things, which is a shame. Their longtime drummer recently succumbed to the economic pressures that threaten us all, leaving them without a crucial part of the rhythm section. They've enlisted a temporary fill-in, but are eagerly seeking a long term solution at this most critical position. If you're a Denver area beat keeper with a taste for Gang of Four, Fugazi, Buzzcocks, et al, you should consider visiting the band on MySpace
and inquiring about the opening. -- Cory Casciato
