Ah, well then Punk Band makes in little more sense in that context than it did as a standalone Smoking Popes song. Knowing that concept restores my faith in the rest of the album.
The rest of the album is great and nothing like Punk Band. I went ahead and pre-ordered a copy of the vinyl from Asian Man after listening.
Yeah, I went ahead and ordered a copy as well. Even Stay Down, which was pretty much 50/50 in terms of songs I liked, was worth buying.
