We kick off season three with the 1997 album One Day At A Time by Symposium, a Britsh band that ignored Britpop for American pop punk.

Author & Special Guests

For our first episode of Season Three, we’ve got a requested review: the 1997 album One Day At A Time by Symposium. Once the “it” band for NME and Melody Maker, the band fell as fast as it rose, while it’s brand of energetic pop punk seemed more in step with American bands like Green Day and Blink-182 than it’s brit-pop contemporaries Oasis and Blur. The young band knows how to write a melodic hook, but do they know how to seamlessly integrate ska? Tune in to find out.

Does This album bring back some great vibes?
