Esoterics – The Lick – CD

Esoterics – The Lick – CD (Olive Records) This is a pretty short CD, 9 songs in just under 20 minutes. However, they get their point across and don’t waste your time with boring extended jams. Yeah, so what Grog, what do they sound like? Well, they...

V/A – Skaliente – CD (Grita!) A great Cd with 16 Ska tracks from 16 bands from North America, Latin America and Europe. Most of the songs are sung en Espanol which I think suits ska so well. I liked every band on the disk and their styles of ska ranged...

U.S. Bombs – War Birth – CD (Hellcat Records) Pissed off punk rock lyrics over melodic punk music. Nothing I haven’t heard a million times before, but damn it’s still always fun. Destroy, fight, sing, slam, run, bitch, pogo, drink and have fun....
