BAZOOKAS: Beach Blanket Blast-Off: 7”

It’s simple, really. Sometimes, a sub-genre of punk rock can be so inundated with mediocrity that fans will dismiss it altogether. Sometimes, a band will come along and blast through the mediocrity and lend credence to that sub-genre again. That’s clearly what’s happening with the Bazookas. They take four surf punk songs and shred through them with speed and finesse. They’re like Johnny Boy Gomes at Pipeline, swinging a bottom turn and setting up for the barrel when most people would struggle like hell to kick out of the wave.
