SRR002 Ultimate Fakebook “The Preserving Machine”

Power-punk-emo-pop trio Ultimate Fakebook returns with its first new album in sixteen years. A collection of tightly wound, disarmingly accomplished songs about shared dreams, national disappointment, friendship, devotion, love and Manhattan KS, the band’s exuberant, you-only-live-once spirit explodes in songs including “Afterhours at Melin’s,” “My Music Industry” and “We’re Sharing The Same Dream Tonight”.
