Dunno if any, or how many, members have moved north from their originalStockton headquarters to the Great White North, but the band’s web addressboasts a Canadian suffix. This is the same band that unleashed the muchsought-after Soundtrack for Trouble EP back in ‘82. The tracks are solid,and you even get a cover of DOA’s “My Old Man’s a Bum” and an updating ofthe Subhumans’ “Dead at Birth.” Was a bit skeptical at the outset,considering most of these “old band makes a new record” endeavors often turnto shit, but they’ve put in some good work here.
