Young Antiques get f'ed up in public

Posted By on Tue, Jun 15, 2010 at 1:10 PM


Atlanta's long-standing power pop denizens the Young Antiques celebrate the release of their new, self-released “Fucked Up In Public” 7-inch at The Star Bar on Fri., June 18.

The title track, according to singer, guitarist and principle songwriter Blake Rainey, is basically about about getting hammered at all of the neighborhood hangouts on Euclid Ave. in Little 5 Points (El Myr, Yacht Club etc.). “It's not autobiographical, but it's safe to say that I've been to all of those bars mentioned in the song many times before,” Rainey adds.

In true 'tiques style the it's brash, fast and very clean. Not quite the usual fair of dirty recordings and sloppy chops that pass for wholesale punk these days, but the base elements are there. Plus it's called "Fucked Up In Public" and it's probably the most memorable song the Young Antiques have churned-out.

"These days I just try and write lyrics I don't think many people have written about before (that's the idea, anyway - I know I'm not the first to write a song about getting drunk) and focus them on, yes, concise songwriting," he continues. "Nuggets, I suppose, are what I'm hoping for."

The b-side features "Gotta Get Over You" and "Is It On?" The latter of which is a live soundboard recording from a show at The Pour House in Raleigh, NC.
