86ERS: Carry the Fire (Discography 1999-2011): CD

Here we have the twelve-year anthology of rough and tumble punk band out of Portland, Oregon. Mid to fast tempo gruff punk about drinking and how shitty it is out there. And more drinking. For boozers of the highest order, they can write a great song. This is really good stuff. I guess it is inevitable that I compare them to another Portland band. The biggestPortland band. I don’t throw Poison Idea comparisons around lightly, but these guys tread the same territory and hold up fine. Not as good (not many are), but definitely good enough to keep on the lookout for more.
