    Aqui el menda tiene el flippin out en vinilo e 12inches de aquellos 90... siempre acompañado del frostin on the beater de los posies. se acabaron los tiempos del fetichismo onanista de las portadas. qué pena.

    Apparently. Who knew the Aunts were so big in Spain? But seriously - if you're reading this and you haven't listened to Flippin' Out yet, go download it immediately. It's a great power pop album.

    Spanish people have awesome taste in music. Shame the rest of the world seem to ignore the Aunts!

    UGH! Another band that indie decided belongs to it! This is not indie!! It's good!! Gigolo Aunts FTW! Similar to the band Reef in their awesomeness! Although I suppose they're indie aswell, pfft! I know I shouldn't care but people are throwing that stupid description around too much!
