AIRES AND GRACES: What Happened to the Kids?: 7”

Sep 23, 2009

It seems like I’m reviewing at least one Longshot record in every issue. Trust me, I don’t mind in the least. There are some great bands on the label and Aries And Graces seem to fit in just fine with the likes of Alternate Action and Harrington Saints: straight-forward street punk that’s played well. I was a little shocked to find a standard black vinyl record in the sleeve. I guess I’ve been getting used to the wacky colored vinyl that Longshot has been throwing around on their last few releases. I should also mention that as much as I dig the tunes, I’ve gotta say “Better Dead Than Red”? Really? It would seem apparent to me that America has bigger problems than communism.
