Listen: Fucked Up guitarist's solo project

Post Author:

Fucked Up guitarist Ben Cook recently released a 7″ on Plastic Idol Records with spindly guitar riffage, hardcore-to-pop punk chord progressions and tuneful, shouty vocals. Definitely in the same family as his daddy band but going his own, sunnier road. That said, he's gone down plenty of other roads, already. His Young Governor MySpace documents just how many:
