ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The new/2005 album from the New Jersey power poppers / garage rockers, Dipsomaniacs, is full of everything that has made this great band so hard to categorize - garage rock stomps, power pop gems, acoustic and piano almost ballads - it's all there. Whatever Planet is the band's 5th and most potent release with 18 new songs plus a free bonus disc called Down the Drain containing 9 rarities tracks all for the price of one CD!

Mike Johnson

Power Pop for the People!
This garage band packs 27 songs with loads of guitar hooks. Good songwriting that ranges from angst-filled daydreams (Deadenders
and I Miss My Car), to affectionate odes to distant family members (Goodbye
4AM, Daddy's on a Book Tour, and Hoodie), to just downright good story telling (White Trash Girl and Hello Cleveland). You get the sense they play to keep themselves amused. Along the way, this is great entertainment for the rest of us.

It is the Dipsomaniac's "Born To Run".
The new album is amazing stuff. It is the Dipsomaniac's "Born To Run". I've had it playing in the car continuously for the past two weeks.

"On their latest disc, Whatever Planet, New Jersey's Dipsomaniacs show tremendous growth as musicians. To be sure, you still get that down 'n dirty Replacements styled rock 'n roll for which they've gained renown, but
here the melodies and arrangements drip like honey from that sandpaper veneer. Mick Chorba is definitely a songwriter to be reckoned with. Plus, along with Whatever Planet you get an extra disc called Down The Drain,
which showcases that Dipso sound in a more stripped-down milleu. Very
cool!"

Dipsomaniacs - "whatever planet"

Dipsomaniacs are one of those bands that consistantly put out really great garage rock pop albums...so why is it that they aren't famous?!? This new album (which includes an equal good bonus disc, "down the drain"), is the perfect album to crank up whether at home, at work, or driving down the highway. The pop gems on this album (take your pick of the 18 tracks, but some primo examples include "thank you", "like an aeroplane" and "heavy metal boots") make this a feel good album as good as anything Fountains Of Wayne have put out.

The Dipsomaniacs' followup to their brilliant Freakin' Eureka CD is called Whatever Planet. It's another strong effort from the band and there are plenty of songs which radio stations should be playing.

The Dipsos continue to make songs in the late 80s / early 90s "alternative music" vein... back when alternative actually meant something. We're talking hints of Elvis Costello, The Replacements, The Smithereens, Ben Folds, and the Beatles. And like I always say, good influences usually bring about good music. In this case, the theory holds true again.

Upstage Radio is currently playing a bunch of these tracks in heavy rotation. Our favorites from the record include "Syd Barrett," "Thank You," "Quitters", "Like An Aeroplane", "Daddy's On a Book Tour", and "The Hoodie Song."

The disc also contains a second disc of rarities called "Down The Drain" that includes a few incredible gems like "Hello Cleveland" which is the song we're playing the most. Take a look at "I Need A Beer" and "White Trash Girl" as well. You'll be glad you did...

The late '80's and early '90's were a fertile time for what was once truly 'alternative' music. Bands like The Smithereens, Cracker, R.E.M. and The Replacements were fusing a '60's pop sensibility with a rough modern guitar sound. Dipsomaniacs are an equally rockin' pop band from the East coast that would've blended in beautifully with that lot.

"Whatever Planet" begins with "Thank You," a mid-tempo number that Paul Westerberg would be proud of. "Daddy's On A Book Tour" stands out as my favorite, though, as I cued it up three or four times in a row during my first listen.

Though these tracks were recorded in head Dispomaniac Mick Chorba's basement, you'd never know it. The recording, as well as the songs themselves are about as high-quality as they come. As if eighteen solid tracks weren't enough to satisfy your pop sweet tooth, a bonus CD of rarities is also included.
