Album Review

Reviewed 2004-10-17
Excellent LOUD indie/punk action. A tossed salad of No Means No, Refused, Fugazi, Jawbox, old Am Rep label bands like Vertigo and Hammerhead + Jesus Lizard and a bunch of other killer stuff that made the era of Eddie Vedder & 90120 not so shitty.

(1) Why did they put this in, it’s just them tuning up!
(((2))) Wild, spastic LOUD rockin’ action ‘ala Refused, Jesus Lizard, No Means No,
((((3)))) Totally KILLER, uptempo full-bore kick-ass stuff! Like the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion on total stun mixed with Refused.
(((((4)))) This sounds like early Replacements mixed with Dillinger Four and Jesus Lizard. Loud druming & tight as hell breakdowns. In other word crank up this fucker!
((((5))) Loose, like early early Fugazi, No Means No, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion on speed.
(6) About 8 seconds of feedback and noodling that’s it !
((((7)))) Super-energetic mix of No Means No and Jesus Lizard with phenomenal guitar work!
((((8)))) More of the same as the last track but with a ‘herky-jerky’ fret board mangling going on. Loud drums and tweakin’ on the guitars and but more headthuddin’ fast raucous rawk.
((((9)))) Almost straight-ahead with loud vocal lines that jump all over the joint. Great boogie by way of speedy punk riffing.
((10)) I dunno WHAT the fuck this is but possibly the whole album played backwards set up on one track on the CD. Weird but sort amusing.
