CHASED AND SMASHED: 30 Seconds Over Hillsboro: LP

Feb 21, 2008

The packaging and vinyl are immaculate. The thick insert that has comic and lyric sheet. Blue vinyl. Chased and Smashed are in the same pajama party of dirty, pop-liking, DIY punk rock as ADDC, Allergic to Bullshit, and Crimpshrine, with a slight whiff of Fleshies thrown in for rockatude. That said, if they were put on a bill, I feel like they’d be the opening band. Although not terrible – there’s some toe tapping going on – Chased and Smashed isn’t terribly memorable. Pretty standard fare.
