CHASED AND SMASHED: 30 Seconds Over Hillsboro: LP

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.
