Released:
Label: Epitaph
As per the usual, My Shame Is True (a play on Elvis Costello's My Aim Is True) is a pun-soaked, hijinks-stained, hook-laden slab of pop punk. On "I Wanna Be a Warhol" -- which sounds a lot like early Foo Fighters -- Matt Skiba digs a girl so much that he longs to be turned into one of the artist's classic Day-Glo silkscreens just so he can hang from her wall. Not sure if he's singing about the same girl, but on the Strokes-meets-Misfits rocker "Pocket Knife" Skiba suffers from nightmare visions of her chasing him down with blade in hand. This dude totally has issues with the opposite sex!
