Cusp of the 21st century. Behold, E.B. White meets Dee Dee Ramone. TEMPLETONS were four Michigan dudes with no scruples about copping their favorite band's style. Ramones jackets, Ramones shoes, Ramones-style songs. Named in honor of the gluttonous rat from Charlotte's Web, these homeboys ate up basement party fun like a veritable smorgasbord. The boys kept it up from 1999 to 2003, reforming briefly for an anti-Black Friday party in November 2010 - just to prove that they still don't care how much they sound like their favorite band. Hence these resurrected tunes, scraped from the fetid bowels of a late 90s C-45 and vomited onto the internet tubes. Enjoy it. Or don't.
