Hot Topic Kids

  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    "Bubblegum Romance" is back on vinyl! It contains longtime faves that you all seem to like, such as "I'm In Love With Everyone I Know", "Freezing In Florida", "Nerdy Girls", "RetroLowFi", "Hot Topic Kids", "I Need a Hug", "No London In Brazil", "Bounce Bounce Bounce" and more. Plus we've included a bonus track: a version of "Music Can Heal" recorded at the final sessions. I'm not sure why I didn't include it the first time around, as I consider this to be the definitive version of the song. That recording is exclusive to the vinyl version!

    Includes unlimited streaming of Bubblegum Romance via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

    **TENTH ANNIVERSARY OF "BUBBLEGUM ROMANCE". ISSUED ON LIMITED VINYL FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME (bubblegum pink with bonus track!)**

    I couldn't be more proud to make this announcement. My album "Bubblegum Romance" turns ten years old this month. To celebrate, we've pressed a limited amount of the album on this delicious looking pink vinyl. This is the first time it's ever been on wax, still contains longtime faves that you all seem to like, such as "I'm In Love With Everyone I Know", "Freezing In Florida", "Nerdy Girls", "RetroLowFi", "Hot Topic Kids", "I Need a Hug", "No London In Brazil", "Bounce Bounce Bounce" and more. Plus we've included a bonus track: a version of "Music Can Heal" recorded at the final sessions. I'm not sure why I didn't include it the first time around, as I consider this to be the definitive version of the song. That recording is exclusive to this special colored vinyl version!

lyrics

There's a safety pin in your Evian
You wonder where the spirit's gone
When everyone gets old and they start to sing flat
That's when they cash in to make their wallets fat
You can't make fun of a uniform
Or draw caricatures if you've got one on
That kinda statement is pretty bold

Sid Vicious shot himself in the arm
The Sex Pistols became disarmed
Sid wasn't a punk, he was just annoyin'
Due to all the drugs that he liked to enjoy
You can't make fun of a uniform
Or draw caricatures if you've got one on
That kinda statement is really bold

Punks make fun of emo kids
Emo kids make fun of themselves
You don't need a statement
When the attitude's cranked to twelve

I had me a vision
There wasn't any television
There wasn't no atmosphere
We gotta get ourselves some beer
From starin' at the sun

You can't make fun of a uniform
Or draw caricatures if you've got one on
That kinda statement is really bold

You can't make fun of a uniform
Or draw caricatures if you've got one on
That kinda statement is really bold

You can't make fun of a uniform
Or draw caricatures if you've got one on
That kinda statement is really bold

Who wants to watch a punk rocker grow old?
