Overlooked 1990s Indie Rock
K. W. Schreiter | Conshohocken, PA | 12/02/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Poster Children were one of the better 1990s indie rock bands. I remember two of their great shows at the tiny Lehigh University pizzeria. While they never achieved mainstream success, they released a string of solid albums and toured the world without compromising their DIY aesthetic. With its firm but melodic music and intelligent lyrics, 'Tool of the Man' is their most consistent work and sounds better today than much of their contemporaries' output. 'Blatant Dis', 'Clock Street' and 'Three Bullets' are favorite tracks. Rick and Rose currently do a weekly podcast from their basement called 'Radio Zero'."
Fan of the cool, "Tool of the man".

"I'm no fanatic, so I can't compare this 3rd album to others of theirs. But basically it's your typical indie/punk disc from 1993. Sounds kinda like "Mudhoney" or old "Sonic Youth" to me. But whatever, it's a decent listen. The coolest thing about "Tool of the Man" is the insert. The cover is a green, yellow, and black U.S. flag, that when you stare at it for 20 seconds and look away, you see it in red, white, and blue. Then inside is one of those "Minds Eye" things that you look at and see a 3-D picture. Like one of those posters for children."
