Complete Control Sessions
SideOneDummy Records 
Fire Note Says: A solid performance from the Smoking Popes!
Complete Control Radio is a nationally syndicated all punk radio show hosted by SideOneDummy Records co-owner Joe Sib. The Smoking Popes session represents number four in the Complete Control Series and it is also one of the best yet.
This series has already turned out some solid punk rock and the Smoking Popes shine in this forum as they mirror their studio sound and come off here with great confidence, a focused direction and a little risk. All of those factors make this release succeed and once again tell us that all the hype once surrounding the Smoking Popes was absolutely point on!
Key Tracks: "Let's Call It Love", "Writing A Letter", "I Dreamed A Dream"
