Review of Whatever Planet by the Dipsomaniacs

By Gary Wien

The Dipsomaniacs' followup to their brilliant Freakin' Eureka CD is called Whatever Planet. It's another strong effort from the band and there are plenty of songs which radio stations should be playing.

The Dipsos continue to make songs in the late 80s / early 90s "alternative music" vein... back when alternative actually meant something. We're talking hints of Elvis Costello, The Replacements, The Smithereens, Ben Folds, and the Beatles. And like I always say, good influences usually bring about good music. In this case, the theory holds true again.

Upstage Radio is currently playing a bunch of these tracks in heavy rotation. Our favorites from the record include "Syd Barrett," "Thank You," "Quitters", "Like An Aeroplane", "Daddy's On a Book Tour", and "The Hoodie Song."

The disc also contains a second disc of rarities called "Down The Drain" that includes a few incredible gems like "Hello Cleveland" which is the song we're playing the most. Take a look at "I Need A Beer" and "White Trash Girl" as well. You'll be glad you did...
