Vietnam is the sound of dirt and cracked Levi's. The band perfectly captures the transitional era their name encapsulates. They are the sound of unrest and turmoil; equal parts aloof laid back, barefoot basement rockers and scuzzed up street punks filled with a rebellious spirit. They would be the counterculture, if such a thing still existed. They wouldn't seem to care if it did or not. Vietnam is the sound of everything that used to fuel a band; catharsis, restlessness, wanderlust and vitriol. They know when a song should slow down and ride a high, they know when a to channel their energy into electric aggression and for being a bunch of city boys they even know how to choogle once in a while. Seems it's a good year for having a penchant for wandering into classic rock territory. Vietnam seem right at home there.

"Choogle". Great word.

Now where did I leave my Creedence records?

Exactly. Keep on Chooglin'.

I wonder what the point is with bland retro bands like this. Are there not enough Grand Funk records to go around?
