Ben Diesel and The ‘We’ve Always Partied’ EP.

Ben Diesel – St. Louis, Missouri, USA. ‘Remember when Pop-Punk was fun? Ben Diesel remembers.’ This was one of those reviews where I hadn’t the foggiest of ideas what I would behold. Once I had beheld the EP in question, I found myself completely dumfounded. Sounding like a combination of...
