Though it might not be the punkiest sentiment, the Outfits are about friendship, and the magical creations that spawn from it. It's also refreshing that the great halls of punk rock — a spoiled fraternity which began as a snarling response to spoiled fraternities — can not only make room for sorority, but be substantially enhanced by its presence. To us at least, that makes for a far more interesting story than observing yet another square in the vast, yellowing quilt of punk rock. What'll be even more interesting is seeing how the Outfits evolve now that one of their most defining elements has been rewritten: drummer Anna Flemke was replaced with veteran New Hampshire drummer Todd Gardner after these recordings were made. It's a new outfit now — see how it suits you at their record release party at Geno's.
