The Olympic Hopefuls* - Let’s Go!
I can’t believe I just heard this on the radio, I love this song!
I found these guys entirely on accident back in like, 2005? I was in St. Paul visiting my parents for Christmas and I saw a local “best of” article about them in the ST. PAUL NEWSPAPER of all places. I dug their matching tracksuits and eventually remembered to look them up ON A COMPUTER LIKE GOD INTENDED. And then had to take 2 steps back and buy their CD in the mail but the point IS this album is a ton of fun and they are so much fun to see live. Even though that Applewick guy left to play bass for Tapes N Tapes.
I don’t even know if these dudes are still together, but some good times have been had listening to this album.
*Yes, I know they are just “The Hopefuls” now, but not when this album was originally released back before the official Olympic committee made them change it.
