If it wasn't evident enough on 1999's trashy and glamorous "Goodbye Private Life," The Kiss Offs don't just LOVE rock and roll, they have a destructive, co-dependant relationship with the genre and feel compelled to talk (or "sing") about it whenever possible. They've recorded this new album about, for, and because of ROCK. "Rock Bottom" directly addresses how ROCK has saved their otherwise mundane middle class lives, only to make those same lives not quite as livable because the band members are poor, unemployed, dirty, continuously intoxicated, willfully destructive and often sleeping on floors. As usual, the guitars skronk and spurt, the bass rumbles and belches, the keyboard warbles and wails and the drums pound like a polyrhythmic migrane.
