Ned Lannamann obviously hasn't listened to the RX Bandits since 1997, or he'd have noticed that they haven't put out a ska/punk song since the early 2000's, and have instead progressed into one of the most interesting and challenging bands in rock music. And, as far as ska/punk being too uniform to count as "art," the indie-pop and folk rock that the Mercury almost exclusively reviews is as indistinguishable, group by group, as any mid-90s SoCal bands were. I dare you to stick around after Builders and Butchers and not be blown-away by the RX Bandits' amazing live show.
