COCKROACHES: No Boarding and Pop Fodder: CD

Judging from the first song, this Russian band apparently falls in the pop punk pigeonhole. The reason I really can’t say for sure is that the disc began skipping midway through that song and I couldn’t get it to play any others on the disc. Upon ejecting it, I found that the reason that it wouldn’t play is because it looks like someone dragged it face down through a gravel quarry.

 

Yup, they play pop punk. There’s even a fucking ska song. Christ, is there nowhere on this god‑forsaken planet that hasn’t been infected with this crap? To call the music here drivel would be to compliment it. This disc, by the way, looked like someone tried to polish it with a piece of coarse sandpaper.
