If you've never seen Terry Anderson kicking around with one of his other bands during the last few decades, The Olympic Ass-Kicking Team is a pretty splendid chance to catch up with a songwriter who understands the most basic function of rock 'n' roll—attitude, baby—better than plenty. Comedic and cocksure, Anderson is so schooled in his craft that he leads his band from behind the kit. After all, it's easier to kick the ass of the ass- kicking team if you're behind them. They headline, with Michael Rank's bleary-eyed, Stones-in-shambles project STAG opening. Also, the new MSRP.
