Five Iron Frenzy never really caught on this side of the pond, probably because their brand of ska was 20 years out of date when they started and hadn’t caught on now that they have decided to call it a day. After a patchy set of releases, here’s the patchiest of them all to mark the beginning of the end. There is one final “proper” album being released to coincide with their farewell American tour. In the meantime, here’s an odds and sods round up of every little silly idea they ever had and full length songs not good enough to be put on other albums. The result is a bit grim and tiring after one listen. Some musical skeletons should just be left in the cupboard. They originally wanted to call it ‘Cheeses Of Nazareth’ but the label persuaded them this would not go down well in America so they shortened it to ‘Cheeses…’. Personally, it would just have been better if they’d shortened it to ‘Cheese’.
