Betty Blowtorch – Get Off – CD

Betty Blowtorch – Get Off – CD (Foil Records) The first thing that caught my eye when I saw this disc, other than the cool artwork, was that Duff of GnR produced it. They remind me of L7 and Bulimia Banquet, with their last song having more of a Bikini...

Betty Blowtorch – Get Off – 7″

Betty Blowtorch – Get Off – 7″ (Foil Records) This single has two songs from their EP. Get off is about one grrrl being raped by her dad and the hatred felt. The other is the Betty Blowtorch theme. Fucking powerful shit from three ex-members of Butt...

Boris the Sprinkler – Suck – CD

Boris the Sprinkler – Suck – CD (Go-Kart Records) Fast and fun, it’s Boris The Sprinkler. This band is full of tomfoolery and has an earlier Ramones sound. For some reason while listening to this c.d. I thought to myself “This band should do a...

Blindspot – Acceleration Zone – CD

Blindspot – Acceleration Zone – CD (Tomato Head Records) This is a North California pop-ska band. Yes, another band playing the new breed of pop-ska that makes me think of No Doubt or 311, but with more of a ska influence than either of them. This release...

Blur – 13 – CD

Blur – 13 – CD (Virgin Records) My best advice is “skip the radio single”. Pop “13″ into your cd player and skip to track two and then buckle up for a really great album. Tender the first single is a fun Roy Orbison-esque song....

Buck-O-Nine – Libido – CD

Buck-O-Nine – Libido – CD (TVT Records) More fun-time, skankable music from this bunch of ska punkers. I like their mix of first, second and third wave sounds. However their lyrics don’t make any real impression on me at all. They seem secondary to...

Boxer – The Hurt Process – CD

Boxer – The Hurt Process – CD (Vagrant Records) Fast-paced punk-pop could almost be called hardcore. Their singer definitely has that hardcore feel but with a melodic touch. Most of their lyrics deal with relationships, which could be the reason this...
Buck Cherry – Buckcherry – CD

Buck Cherry – Buckcherry – CD

Buck Cherry – Buckcherry – CD (Dreamworks Records) A very fun rockin’ cd. Kind of a bluesy, southern-rock album along the lines of early Black Crowes with a little Dangerous Toys thrown in the mix. Probably one of my favorite cds that I reviewed this...
B*Witched – B*Witched – CD

B*Witched – B*Witched – CD

B*Witched – B*Witched – CD (Epic) OK, minus 100 punk points for me even considering listening to this disc. What you have here are four good looking young women who sing light, bubblegum pop…no it’s not the Spice Hurls it’s B*Witched....
