  Against Me - Americans Abroad!!! {Fat Wreck}
By Scannerzine submitted

A 17-track live slab recorded in London on the ‘...Former Clarity’ tour. It’s a typically blazing affair featuring tracks from the band’s three albums + a witty new song, ‘Americans Abroad’. It’s neat to hear the ‘...Clarity’ songs stripped to their bare-bones without losing anything in the translation. I kinda thought Fat would have released this as part of the ‘Live In A Dive’ series as opposed to a straight-up live album - their loss maybe. The passion and zeal of the performance is quite staggering at times, especially on ‘Problems’ which is included as a CD-ROM video (which the Scanner computers couldn’t actually access!}. Snag is, I no longer see or feel any credibility in a band that could write ‘Unprotected Sex With Multiple Partners’ and, within 12 months, sign to a major!! It all seems to suck of using Punk Rock as a stepping stone to rock stardom - what gives? I find it hard to believe any band, in today’s climate and of the persuasion that AGAINST ME! is, could find a more appropriate, supportive or sincere label as Fat. Oh well, I guess the prospect of Meatloaf or Phil Collins guesting on future AGAINST ME! singles (all of which will be featured on the album of course) does have a vague perverse appeal, and no doubt the band will feel very much at home.
