Album Review

Reviewed 2004-08-23
This isn’t some new “old-styled punk” band but a punk/h.c. band from Southern California whose roots go back all the way to 1979. Musically this is isn’t too different from the later-era Poison Idea material (the more punk rock leaning stuff not the hardcore stuff), Fear, The Goons, and a bit of AntiSeen (in the vocals mainly). Punk n’ roll, rockin’ hardcore - whatever you wanna call it’s all here.

((((1)))) Fast & rockin’, straight-ahead & political punk. There’s cussing in this song but it’s either sung so fast or so unintelligible.
(((2))) Catchy but kind of redundant.
((((3)))) Basic 4 chord punk n’ roll. Cool lyrics that are an ode to his daughter.
((((4)))) Really killer punker with an Oi! vibe. I think the theme is to just go where you want without letting the insanity of the world preventing you from doing so.
((((5)))) Very 80’s Orange Country/LA style punk. (0:35, 1:28 FCC “fucked”)
((((6)))) Kind of AntiSeen sounding mixed with Fear and The Anti Nowhere League. It’s all about one of the greatest beers on earth!
((7)) 70’s boogie rock riffs. Not too bad, but mostly like that not so great “rock” laden stuff D.O.A. recorded throughout the 90’s
(((8))) Starts off with a drum beat like the DKs “Holiday In Camobdia”. Pretty cool & rockin’ but mostly kind of “there”.
(((9))) Off-kilter riffing sounds kind of like Fear playing with a much harder & faster style.
((((10))))(FCC 0:55 “fuck”) Wailing guitars & super speedy punk.
(((((11))))) Fuckin aye does this sound great. 80’s style L.A. hardcore with some insanely awesome guitar tone. Crank this ‘un! Now!!!
((12)) Slow & grizzled not too bad but nothing inspired here.
(((13))) Fast & furious with some blunt lyrics against what seems like a murder/rapist/racist fuckhead. But way too many FCCs on this one.
(((14)) More wailing & rippin’ guitar-heavy punk but it gets bogged down with too much repition in the chorus.
((((15)))) A mix of the Goons, Fear, Adolescents and AntiSeen. AKA: Fast, ugly & rockin’ punk/hardcore
