DEAD LAZLO’S PLACE: Lazlo for Life: CD

Hardcore veterans from L.A. that produce in-your-face punk rock. Their drummer took over as singer, but, thankfully, this is no Phil Collins debacle. The songs are about drinking, rocking, and Charlie’s Angels. There’s a good English Dogs cover in here, too. “Blues for Jerry” and “Fresh Bruises” pack the most beef into this rock burger. Looks like they are trying to wrestle the “Budweiser drinking band” title from Gang Green. This release puts them well within the pack.
