Sweet Baby "It's A Girl"

Lookout 157

Sweet Baby, formerly The Sweet Baby Jesus, began in 1986 at the behest of Dr. Frank who needed to organize some entertainment for his then-girlfriend’s eviction party. He even offered to play drums if his college pals Dallas and Matt would perform for the party-goers before his band The Mr. T Experience played an acoustic set. Not once since their chance meeting in high school had Dallas and Matt shirked an unusual challenge. So they did it: songs were written; their friend "Crispy" Jim was recruited to play bass; with Dr. Frank on the snare drum, The Sweet Baby Jesus had begun... And incredibly, it continued! Taking no heed of the hessians screaming "You suck!" during their first show, Dallas and Matt proceeded to churn out amazing music that would later define a well-known genre called "pop punk." With an eventual name-change to Sweet Baby the band was joined at one time or another by past and future members of Samiam, Crimpshrine, The Wynona Riders and Soup. Many people look to their debut album "It's A Girl" as the record that should have been on everyone’s turntable, but fell victim to the tragedy that major labels can cause when your A&R dude gets a better job. When all is said and done; when the last votes are tallied; when you are forced really to decide for that "desert island" scenario - Sweet Baby's "It's A Girl" is undeniably one of the best pop-punk records of all time.
