Joey Cape/Tony Sly

Acoustic Split

(No Use For A Name, Lagwagon, Bad Astronaut, Me First And The Gimme Gimmes)

Fat Wreck Chords 665

Released on May 18, 2004


$8.00

$13.00

The life of a touring musician is filled with a lot of down time, a lot of time spent throwing ideas around about future musical ventures. It's not uncommon to be on a tour bus and hear, "I got it! We should (insert future musical venture here), That would be really cool!" This is the very conversation that Joey Cape and Tony Sly (frontmen of Lagwagon and No Use For A Name) had sometime in the last year. This time the insertion was, "record a split acoustic album!" It's not often that these ideas come to fruition, but this one has and it's called Acoustic! The original idea was to do five catalog songs each, but there had to be something more...try a brand new song from both of them! Acoustic is a chance for fans of both No Use For A Name and Lagwagon to hear some of the bands most popular songs as they were originally written, on an acoustic guitar.

this is an awesome cd. it's sort of short but it is worth the money. this one is good after getting burnt out on all your hardcore music. it is very mellow.

Good split. The Tony Sly side is what I imagined acoustic NUFAN to sound like. Not great, but not bad either. I think one of his songs was an earlier version of a later NUFAN song. The better half of this CD lies with Joey Cape. His songs have a really huge Bad Astronaut feel to them. (which makes sense considering the backing musicians are members from BA) Every song but one is a Lagwagon song, the other one (Violet) later became a BA song. Recommended to anyone who likes NUFAN, Lagwagon, Bad Astronaut ect.

AWESOME CD! Especially if you already know the original songs, but still great even if you don't. It's actually not what I thought it would be...I expected the exact same songs played slower to an acoustic guitar. But instead it was so much better than that! They really make the songs unique but still keep them the same. And it's not just a guitar, it's all sorts of acoustic instruments, especially with Joey who has a bunch of orchestral instruments and even an accordion. I love it…especially Move The Car!

I only got this for Joey Cape and i was not dissapointed at all. I didnt care much for Tony Sly(i guess its his voice that annoys me)but he has a cuple good songs. Joey Cape does his own style with his songs adding in diferent instruments sounding amazing. Violins, Move the Car, and Violet are my favoprites.

This split is a must have! Great for any fan of No Use or Lagwagon. Check out the acoustic version of Move The Car! Sweet.

Well i'm a big fan of both Lagwagon and No Use and i love hearing acoustic versions of songs, so this CD is really awesome even if it sounds all emo but maybe emo is a good thing sometimes? well anyways this is a really good good cd!

AWESOME CD! Im not normaly one for the acoustic scene, but sometimes i think it pays to have a listen to the more softer sides of life. I mean cmon, Sly and Cape, it was destined for success right from the get go. These guys are a couple of the coolest cats in the punk rock scene, and this cd simply does not fail! Personally i prefer the Cape side of this cd but man can Sly pull off some cool tunes aswell. Great Work Guys! Go for it if you like Lagwagon, No use or simply acoustic punk!

this is a neat cd, but i wouldn't get it unless you've heard and know the original versions of the songs on it faily well, otherwise all you'll hear is emo. if you're a nufan fan or a wagon fan (or, hopefully, both), you'll really appreciate the job joey and tony did remixing their respective band's songs. it's totally ballad-ish, which is cool, but its not something i would listen to all the time, and the acoustic versions aren't really as good as the originals, but still a good buy nonetheless

This is a great acoustic split. I like Cape's side better Tony's, but hes still got some pretty good stuff. All in all this one of the better acoustic albums ive bought so pick this up, definatly get it if your into Cape's stuff(Lagwagon,Bad Astronaut).
