ALAN SIX: Illuminachos: CD

Seven songs of lo-fi pop punk from this band from Las Vegas. Coming across a lot like a band that might have been the opener on a bill with Tilt or Discount twenty years ago, Alan Six are solid at the style. Not nearly as good as, say, The Front or the F Bombers, but if you are a fan of mid-tempo pop punk with a rough and ragged edge, this gets the job done. –Mike Frame (Self-released, alansix.bandcamp.com)
