LAST WEEK’S DUSTY DIAMOND (a forgotten gem from the STD vaults): The
Odd Numbers were a garage-y pop punk band from San Jose. They had several
albums and singles throughout the 90s, and released an album and a couple
singles in 2017. “All Worked Up (Fight Your Friends)” is a peppy melodic rocker
with a thumping bass line and some nice crunchy guitar. It appeared in 1996 on a
split single with the Hi-Fives on G.I. Productions. Listen to it here:
