CD Review: Less Than Jake Are Bringing TV Themes On Tour

Punk rockers Less Than Jake are currently on tour in support of the new EP entitled simply "TV/EP." The EP was released in October 2010 by the band's own record label Sleep It Off. Less Than Jake are also in the process of reissuing a couple of the group's biggest selling albums, "Losing Streak" and "Hello Rockview." Look for those releases coming March 1st.

The new EP features the band putting their own spin on TV theme songs and commercials without taking away each show's familiar jingle. They perform theme songs from some of today's biggest kid shows like iCarly and Spongebob Squarepants along with classic shows like Different Strokes and Laverne & Shirley. In between the theme songs, the band also performs short little commercial snippets like Hungry, Hungry Hippos and Oscar Mayer Wieners. The EP is great fun to listen to over and over again.

Don't forget to catch them live on their latest tour. They will be performing at the Webster Theater in Hartford, CT on Friday, January 28. For a complete list of tour dates and a great video that was created especially for this "TV/EP" release, check out the band's website, http://www.lessthanjake.com/.
