COLONIX: Self-titled: 7”

Nov 17, 2011

This totally kick-ass six-song 7” has a very 1990s feel. Colonix is from Seattle, but they’d fit in great on a Boston punk show circa 1996 with August Spies and The Unseen as openers. The vocalist has a higher-than-tenor-pitched range, adding to the snotty fun. When’s the next street punk revolution coming? It’s long overdue. Bands like this never stopped filling America’s basements, but there seems to be a recent renewed broader interest in street punk, with new bands like Colonix and Cerebral Ballzy putting out records left and right. The smell of beer and butt sweat can be a beautiful thing.  –Art Ettinger (
