Imagine if London’s Zatopeks married Scott Pilgrim’s band Sex Bob-omb and had an affair with Rivethead from Minneapolis while tonguing the Unlovables. This saccharine pop-punk mutant would most definitely be the Teenage Bubblegums, who crank out super poppy pop songs about love. A perfect fit for their label, Monster Zero, which specializes in punk of this flavor. Nothing new here, but fans of the genre will find a lot to enjoy.
