LP Review: "More Badass Than Half Ass" by Korean Fire Drill

More Badass Than Half Ass
Now more than ever, we need laughter in our lives.

There has been a great deal of ugliness across the United States already and sometimes we just need to be able to just take a moment, breathe, and get back to fighting back.

Anyone out there who needs to hear it...there are lots of us out there who're fighting and willing to listen.

But in the meantime, we all need to be able to keep our chins up and move forward. Because if we stand and watch, we'll all be trampled.

As for Korean Fire Drill's name...interestingly enough, they aren't the first band with an Asian country in their name that we've reviewed. Remember Half Japanese? As I don't precisely agree with John Cleese and political correctness, I can plainly say there is no othering in this record.

So let's ride.
No Photo. :(

Ask yourself what music is all about.

After years upon years of this, it would seem that my answer would be carved in stone caves instead of not really existing.

It's probably safe to say that Korean Fire Drill isn't what music is all about, but it's pretty much impossible to turn their album off.

Aside from stealing one of my karaoke jams, The Bad Touch, there's also some other interesting cover choices, see the video below, along with some pretty crazy original tracks.

To say what kind of band they are, well, that's hard to say...what sort of group is the Bloodhound Gang?

If there are any musical peers for Korean Fire Drill, it's the Bloodhound Gang, but honestly, KFD is funnier. Like MC Chris, this album features a single storyline broken up into skits throughout the album.

The content of the skits are then woven into the songs chosen, played, etc. For most of us in the country right now, it feels like there are dark days ahead, but let's all remember to laugh and keep the fight alive.

Korean Fire Drill is one of those great diversions that happen to appear at just the right time. The songs, the guitars, the vocals, and the hilarity is just what the doctor ordered.
