From the Arguyves : Blowing Off Some Steam

 "I think about Terry Francona when I hear this song"
-Jake, 10/28/2004

The latest addition to is another smoker from The Red Door right in the heart of the pigeons era.  While many songs are succinct and to the point, you'll find some dark and dirty (Dragging Me Down), rarities (Steam, Third Personality), classic balls-to-the-wall jams that made you like the band in the first place (Psycho Killer, Burn), and as always, stage banter that at times trumps the music itself.
