Mad Caddies: (2003) Just One More [Fat Wreck Chords Recs.]

The Mad Caddies return to mash it up and mix it down with this exuberant and exhilarating set. The group has made its name with a delirious disregard for genre boundaries, taking punk down roads rarely traveled and flitting and fluttering from style to style; lighting here and landing there, their dizzying flight path leaves even radar in the lurch. Thematically, the Caddies zig and zag as well, often coming full-circle along the way. They celebrate the all-night party on the moody, Latino-tinged "Just One More." But "Day by Day" tells that when you're going nowhere fast and life is just the same old same old, alcohol can help fill the void. However, life on the road can shake things up, and on the western-flavored, Two Tone-esque "10 West," the Caddies "drink, smoke, drink, smoke, this is what we do," across the country. But when they start drowning their sorrows on the rootsy, lovelorn "Drinking for 11," it's clear that their "Last Breath" is near. That latter number is served up in slinky swing jazz style, the ultimate alcoholic regret. In contrast are the slamming hardcore numbers, notably the fury of "Riot"; "Silence," with its anthemic cry of "bomb the enemy," is just as vehement, but this time the band skanks its way angrily across the grooves. "Villains" is just as fast and furious, but served up in Dixieland punk style. But the most breathtaking mix is "Leavin'," a mad blend of punky-Dixie-C&W-smoky swing, but it's all good, for the Caddies have nothing but "Good Intentions," and by the time this album finishes you'll begging for Just One More. Their most mature album yet, no longer an eccentric mix and match novelty act, the Caddies have cemented their disparate influences into a sound that's totally unique, yet undeniably their own. -- Jo-Ann Greene

TRACKS>> DRINKING FOR 11 - CONTRABAND - VILLAINS - SILENCE - JUST ONE MORE - DAY BY DAY - LEAVIN' - ROCKUPATION - LAST BREATH - SPARE CHANGE 
- RIOT - 10 WEST 13 - GOOD INTENTIONS - WET DOG - GAME SHOW.

Fabulous Disaster: (2004) I'm A Mess [F Recs.]

Featuring ex-members of Inside Out (Detroit) Frightwig, Mudwimin, Angel Corpus Christi, Piston and Mermaid Tattoo, the Fabulous Disaster have brought out their ode to the likes of the Buzzcocks and X to their hometown of San Francisco since their 1998 formation. Consisting of Laura Litter (lead vocals), Lynda Mandolyn (guitar/ vocals), Mia d' Bruzzi (guitar), Mr. Nancy (bass) and Sally Gess (drums), the Disaster debut their full-length Pretty Killers on Evil Eye Records a year following their formation.

D.O.A.: (1993) It's Not Unusual...But It Sure Is Ugly! [Alternative Tentacles]

This five-song disc features a cover of the quasi-title cut that Tom Jones made most famous. Of course, the D.O.A. version of "It's Not Unusual" has an entirely different tone than that of the perpetually panty-showered Vegas crooner. Vocalist Joey Keithley revels in the schmaltzy track, extending notes with a throat-splitting caterwaul and enough rasp to make even the most hardened punk fan cringe. The rest of the songs play like the castoffs and filler tunes they surely are. Coming at the end of a 36-month period in which D.O.A. released three full-length recordings, it's hard to think that the band had enough good original tunes (or covers for that matter) to fill out even this collection's pint-sized track listing. Probably not much more than a vinyl novelty item for obsessive collectors of punk plastic, It's Not Unusual is in no way a necessary edition for the average hardcore fan. -- Jason Anderson

TRACKS>> IT'S NOT UNUSAL - DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES - BLUE TO BROWN - HELP ME GET OUT OF HERE - RUNAWAY WORLD.

Gas Huffer: (1996) The Inhuman Ordeal Of Special Agent Gas Huffer [Epitaph Recs.]

Gas Huffer was formed in 1989 by vocalist Matt Wright, guitarist Tom Price, bassist Don Blackstone and drummer Joe Newton. As befitting their Seattle origins, the band plays rootsy punk rock with equal nods to Neil Young and the Cramps. Debut single "Firebug" was released in 1989, followed a year later by the Ethyl EP. Empty Records signed the band and in 1991 issued Gas Huffer's debut album, Janitors of Tomorrow. Two years later, the band returned with Integrity, Technology and Service, but moved to the Epitaph label for 1994's One Inch Masters. The band kicked off 1996 with a salute to their country roots by offering a song to the Willie Nelson tribute album Twisted Willie. Their fourth album, The Inhuman Ordeal of Special Agent Gas Huffer, was released less than a month later. Gas Huffer released their second album for Epitaph Records, Just Beautiful Music, in the spring of 1998; the group also has a surf rock project called the Del-Lagunas which has released several singles. By 2002, the band had switched labels (Estrus) and had another album ready to go, the Jack Endino-produced The Rest of Us. Lemonade for Vampires appeared through Estrus/Touch & Go in September 2005. - John Bush

TRACKS >> YOU ARE NOT YOUR JOB - FALL OF THE KINGFISH - SIXTY THREE HOURS - MOSQUITO STOMP - CAROLINA HOT FOOT - MATT'S MIND - SMILE NO MORE - TINY LIFE - DOUBLE-O-BUM - THE SIN OF SLOTH - NUMBTUMBS COLD - DISCOVERY PARK - MONEY 1, FUN 0 - PLANT YOU NOW.

Articles Of Faith: (2002) Complete Vols. 1 (1981-1983) & 2 (1983-1985) [Alternative Tentacles Recs.]

 A Chicago-based hardcore band that took a strong political stance, Articles of Faith were considered one of the vanguards of that Midwestern city's scene and released a handful of highly influential records. Fronted by former protest singer and eventual history instructor Vic Bondi, Articles of Faith first came on the scene in 1981. Their first EP, What We Want Is Free, was released in 1982 and
was followed by the Wait EP in 1983 and the LPs Give Thanks (1984) and In This Life (1985), which were both produced by Bob Mould. While their early releases contained a mélange of differing styles, their last release, In This Life, is one of the records credited with kick-starting the emocore sound. The band (Bondi, vocals and guitar, Dave Shield, bass and vocals, Virus-X, drums, Dorian Tajbakhsh, guitar, and Joe Scuderi, guitar) broke up in 1985. Bondi went on to form Alloy and Jones Very, released the EP Fortunate Son in 2003, and appeared in the 2006 documentary American Hardcore. In 2002 punk rock label mainstay Alternative Tentacles released Complete, Vol. 1 and Complete, Vol. 2, a comprehensive anthology of the band's work. -- Chris True

TRACKS:
Vol. 1: buried alive - falsse security - street fight - prison - no more time - every day - my father's dreams - bad attitude - what we want is free - give thanks - in your suit - i objectify - acceptance - every man for himself - five o'clock - chicago - hollow eyes - in this jungle - american dreams - in this life.

Vol.2: i've got mine - wait - buy this war - up against the wall - fine line - empty rooms - remain in memory - it doesn't have to be that way - wasn't it right - wheedle dee - around in circles - nowhere - trains - wait for me - never really understood - cambridge - in this life - what we want is free.

Menace: (1980) G.L.C.R.I.P. The Best Of Menace [Razor Recs.]

Formed in 1977 the four piece Menace secured their place in Punk folklore with their stunning "GLC” 45 and cemented it with singles like "Screwed Up” and "Last Year’s Youth” – great singalong Punk with a whole lot of attitude.
Though original vocalist Morgan Webster died and guitarist Steve Tannett left to run various record labels, drummer Noel Martin and bassist Charlie Casey soldiered on with various members and in the process creating many more memorable slices of Punk – "Punk Rock” is a classic without a doubt and "In Gods We Trust” is also up there. Easy to see why so many of the original Oi! wave cite Menace as a major influence.

TRACKS: G.L.C. - Insane Society - Screwed Up - I Need Nothing - Electrocutioner - The Young Ones - Live For Today - Tomorrow's World - Carry No Banners - I'm Civilised - Last Years Youth.

Bad Religion: (2000) The New America (Japan Edition)

Todd Rundgren may seem like an odd choice of producer for Bad Religion, but as The New America illustrates, it was an inspired, even necessary, one for the veteran Californian punkers. Bad Religion painted themselves into a corner in the late '90s, adhering to the literate, hard-driving punk that marked their indie releases. That may have kept them pure, but as they grew older, they wound up repeating many of their musical ideas, while losing some of their focus. Rundgren blends his talents as a pop maverick and a vital hard rock producer on The New America, pushing Bad Religion to strengthen their melodies and hooks without losing their edge. Of course, if the record was just production, it would fall flat, but Bad Religion seems eager to embrace the challenge of making their tightest, tuneful record yet. Maybe some longtime fans will cringe at the big, powerful sound, the backing harmonies, or the catchy melodies, but these were all present on previous Bad Religion releases -- here, they're just presented with more focus. The focus, the careful production, and the group's solid, well-constructed songs result in one of the group's strongest records, while illustrating that the group can indeed grow old gracefully. And that's the most remarkable thing about The New America -- it is clearly the work of a band that's been around for nearly 20 years, but the experience hasn't worn them down, it's strengthened them. They've stayed true to their original vision while expanding its boundaries, which is something many veteran bands, regardless of genre, just can't do. Some credit may go to Rundgren, but the achievement really is Bad Religion's, not his. -- by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

TRACKS >> YOU'VE GOT A CHANCE - IT'S A LONG WAY TO THE PROMISE LAND - A WORLD WITHOUT MELODY - NEW AMERICA - 1000 MEMORIES - A STREETKID NAMED DESIRE - WHISPER IN TIME - BELIEVE IT - I LOVE MY COMPUTER - THE HOPELESS HOUSEWIFE - THERE WILL BE A WAY - LET IT BURN - DON'T SELL ME SHORT - THE FAST LIFE - QUEEN OF THE 21ST CENTURY.

Ben Weasel: (2002) Fidatevi [Panic Button Recs.]

A significant figure in American punk rock from the late '80s onward, Ben Weasel is best known as the founder, lead singer, and guitarist with the band Screeching Weasel, though he's also worked with other acts, recorded as a solo artist, and built a thriving second career as a writer. Weasel was born Ben Foster in Prospect Heights, IL, a suburb of Chicago. Foster developed a strongly opinionated streak and rebellious nature as a teenager, and was tossed out of three different Chicago-area schools before he was shipped off to Maine to attend the Elan School, described by its administrators as "a residential school for troubled teens." While Foster had been a serious heavy metal fan, at Elan he was introduced to punk rock and became a passionate follower of the Ramones and pioneering hardcore acts such as Black Flag and the Circle Jerks. After returning home to Illinois, Foster took at a job at a movie theater, where he renewed his friendship with fellow usher John Pierson, who'd known Foster in junior high. Foster and Pierson bonded over their shared enthusiasm for punk, and they decided to form a band after checking out a Ramones show; Foster christened himself Ben Weasel and Pierson became John Jughead. -- Mark Deming

TRACKS >> PATIENCE - THE TRUE HEART OF LOVE - FIDATEVI - EVEN PACE - THE SHIP - STRANGERS - TRUTH AND BEAUTY - INDECISION - NO EXPECTATIONS - IMPERFECT WORLD - RESPONSIBILITY - TAKE ACTION - WATER AND WAVES - THE RAYS OF THE SUN.

Braid: (1999) Please Drive Faster (7-inches) [Polyvinyl Recs.]

In a search to find others interested in trading videos of live shows, drummer/singer Bob Nanna, of Friction, placed a classified ad in Maximum Rocknroll and met drummer Roy Ewing, of Champaign-Urbana, Illinois, in 1993. That fall, Nanna, a freshman at the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana, started hanging out with Ewing, who played in Lowercase N. Nanna's friend guitarist Pete Havranek, of 42 Loads and Inkadink, wanted to play with someone new, so Ewing volunteered. Nanna became their singer and guitarist, Jay Ryan joined them on bass, and Braid were born. Shortly thereafter, Ryan left the band and went on to play with Hubcap and Dianogah. Todd Bell, who had played with Ewing in Lowercase N, replaced Ryan on bass. Kate Reuss was recruited to sing. Braid played their first show on December 10, 1993, in Danville, Illinois. Reuss left the band after the second show.

TRACKS >> PLEASE DRIVE FASTER - CIRCUS OF THE STARS.

Groovie Ghoulies: (1996) Appetite For Adrenochrome [Lookout Recs.]

Horror movie-fueled Sacramento, CA, pop-punks the Groovie Ghoulies originally comprised singer/bassist Kepi, his guitarist wife Roach, and drummer Wendy. After debuting in 1989 with the album Appetite for Adrenochrome, the group spent the early '90s largely out of the spotlight, issuing only the occasional single (including 1990's "Lost Generation" and 1992's "Christmas on Mars") before finally releasing their sophomore album, Born in the Basement, in 1994. By now a hugely popular attraction on the Sacramento club circuit, in 1996 the Groovie Ghoulies signed to Lookout Records to release World Contact Day; Wendy left the lineup soon after, however, and was replaced by ex-Screeching Weasel drummer Dan Panic. - Jason Ankeny

TRACKS >> LOST GENERATION - DO THE BAT - ARMAGEDDON 2000 - 2000 MAN - MY COMPUTER SAID KILL - KING KONG - NO BLOOD - DON'T GO OUT - THE BLOB - DEAD END - BLOOD BEACH - LOOKOUT! - GHOUL CHANT - JUST A FEW MORE HOURS.

The Stranglers: (1993) In The Night [Psycho Recs.]


The Stranglers formed as the Guildford Stranglers in the southern England village of Chiddingfold (near Guildford) in 1974, plowing a heavily Doors-influenced furrow through the local pub rock scene -- such as it was. Of the four founding members, only Hugh Cornwell had any kind of recognizable historical pedigree, having played alongside Richard Thompson in the schoolboy band Emil & the Detectives. According to Thompson, their repertoire stretched from "Smokestack Lightning" and the blues, through to "old Kiki Dee B-sides," while their gigging was largely confined to the Hornsey School of Art, where Thompson's sister was Social Secretary. -- Dave Thompson

TRACKS: Time to Die - Sugar Bullets - Heaven On Hell - Laughing At The Rain - This Town - Brainbox - Southern Mountains - Gain Entry To Your Soul - Grand Canyon - Wet Afternoon - Never See - Leave It To The Dogs - Coffee Shop - Vicious Circles - So Uncool.
