Intro Action is a great song, definitely better than Hold On or Wake Up.

From Interpunk.com Album Description A Poet’s Life began as a “thank you” from Tim Armstrong to Rancid fans, to be released one track at a time on the internet to tide fans over until the next Rancid full-length. But when KROQ in Los Angeles began heavily playing the explosive track “Into Action,” plans were abruptly changed. Now, with a rush release date of May 22nd, Tim Armstrong is bringing his first solo release to the wide world, backed by some of the strongest radio support since the days of “Time Bomb” and “Ruby Soho.” With a killer old-school two-tone groove, helped along by Hellcat labelmates The Aggrolites, A Poet’s Life is loose, punky, infectious, and shamelessly danceable. First single “Into Action” features a mod dance groove, a horn chart Motown would be proud of, and the alluring co-vocals of Skye Sweetnam – already a bonafide hit on west coast stations from SF to San Diego, this is a song destined to capture the world. With a bonus DVD featuring videos of EVERY song and a cool featurette on the making of the album and the videos, along with Armstrong’s typical fan-friendly pricing, A Poet’s Life, far from being a holdover between Rancid releases, is taking on a life of its own.

Since Into Action is turning into such a hit they're going to make as much money as possible off of this now.

Cheshire_Buddha 03/29/07 11:16 AM

I'll pass.

robsmith 03/29/07 11:25 AM

Into Action is a great song, it really should be a hit all over

Eleanerd 03/29/07 11:55 AM

ShoeboxMemories 03/29/07 03:42 PM

As much as I love anything Tim Armstrong does, doesn't this sound a lot like Apache Indian's "Boom Shack-A-Lack".... mostly famous from the intro in Dumb and Dumber.... Am I the only one that thinks this?

lbc182 03/29/07 03:46 PM

This is great! I love Tim Armstrong. He just brings the hits like no other. So classic.

enossel 03/29/07 04:12 PM

God I love the 2-tone ska feel of this.

I have a feeling this is going to be great.
