Violent Society, Blanks 77, Combat Crisis (Live In Trenton 4/20/13)

This past Saturday, I headed to my old home state of NJ to catch a bunch of damn good street punk bands that do not play anywhere near often enough.  The show was at Joe’s Mill Hill Saloon, which was this small little dive with a stage in it’s intimate basement, making it feel like any other house show (but with better bathrooms). Everything about the show reeked of Philly: almost all the bands (minus Blanks 77) and the crowd came out from Philly to […]

The Exploited – Fuck The System (For fans of The Casualties, The Unseen, GBH)

The Exploited are one of the more well known punk bands from the 80s, with their debut “Punk’s Not Dead” released back in 1981 and influencing countless other bands.  However in 2003, these Scottish punks released a new album entitled Fuck The System completely departing from the more classic punk sound, and I’m going to warn you now: it’s not for the faint of heart.

First off, Oxymoron is actually incredibly accessible as far […]

U.F.C – I Want More Beer (For fans of The Casualties, The Unseen, Violent Society)

I realize it’s been a little while since we’ve posted on a solid street punk band, so after digging through the bowels of my musical collection, I rediscovered the street punks U.F.C’s album “I Want More Beer”. An English and Spanish street punk band originally from Florida, the majority of the songs are in English (only two seem to be in Spanish).  U.F.C’s “I Want More Beer” is about as straight forward street punk gets.  Aggressive yet catchy riffs, pissed shouted vocals, this is what […]
