Today is Thanksgiving Day in the US, which is why I thought it appropriate to feature a little known gem called Thanks as this week’s #ThrowbackThursday entry. This concise but sweet song is just 74 seconds long and was the last track on the fifth studio album, Matters (2004) of California-based punk rock band: Pulley. This band released 5 albums between 1996 and 2004 and only one since then until now, and whereas they never reached the popularity of other punk rock bands from that time, they garnered a loyal following. Something curious about them is that Pulley‘s lead singer, Scott Radinsky, was a major league pitcher and a pitching coach after he retired.
Most punk-rock albums feature one or two acoustic tracks and Thanks was that song on Matters. It is a tune to reminisce about the past and appreciating your old friends.
To those of you celebrating it today, Happy Thanksgiving!
