ALCOHOLIC WHITE TRASH: Punk Rock Jihad: CD

Jun 19, 2007

They might not all be white or trash, but they sure have the alcoholic thing down pat. This is AWT’s second full length CD, and it was well worth the wait. Searing hardcore punk, with a hint of metal overtones and heavy on the scum humor, these boys fit right in with their Victoria luminaries Dayglo Abortions and Lummox. Musically, this is the best they’ve ever sounded. Period. The thing that really stood out to me was the vocals. Ratboy Roy has got a voice apart from drunken rambling! Who knew? In the end, I can do without the really over-the-top lyrics (is “I Shit My Cunt” really necessary?), but other than that it truly is a great record.
