The San Diego Reader has a loving story about The Donkeys, the SD-based, beach-baked trio that just released Sun Damaged Youth.

I grabbed it as a dare. It was kind-of gross, but then we were stoked on it because there were all these drawings and stuff.” The band was so inspired by the content that it became the basis for their new lyrics, which they’ve combined with their effervescent surf-punk sound to craft a glorious SoCal-themed concept record.
