It’s extremely doubtful that the Florida punk-folk trio thought that its name would induce so much panic—on more than one occasion bicycles that have bared the band’s sticker have caused confusion, prompting police involvement (in one case, the bomb squad), and the destruction of bikes. Funny stuff, but probably not for the dude whose bike was demolished. The band’s been around for nearly ten years now, and as history has it, began playing mockingly as a country band, but started infusing its punk roots and took it from there. A signature, original sound to be sure, TBIAP’s 2005 release “Three Way for a Fifth” has as much energy and conviction as the band’s long-out-of-print self-titled debut from 1997. Live, it’s both amusing and mighty, dance-inducing to the point of frenzy. Just don’t wear the sticker. (Tom Lynch)
