BRUNCH: The Bananas

Left-field "Peel Sessions" from Sacramento's finest. All-heart Frogger vocals, sizzling six-stringzz, and some of the best melodies this side of 1959 allow conventional building blocks to recombine into some really unforgettable punk rock. "I Gotta Be Me" most acutely channels the sock hop, but the one-size-fits-all spite propelling the ensuing trio shan't be counted out: "Big Blue Marble" charges that much harder. All this and more on the essential First 10 Years collection — for low, low Plan-It-X prices, to boot. And yes, it's a pun.
