Weasels in a Box: You're the Enemy--draft in progress

Fat Wreck Chords is releasing a Screeching Weasel collection, WeaselMania, this fall. As many of you know, Weasel has been one of my favorite punk bands for around 13 years. I'm going to review the final tracklist and then update the review when I get my grubby hands on the actual CD.
