The song “Collecting Complaints” by Defiance, Ohio left me feeling very awkward. I don’t know if I’ve ever heard a song that critiques collecting records and fliers. Maybe I am sitting in my room and hiding, but it’s the only place I feel safe. Two very solid songs by Defiance, Ohio. Environmental Youth Crunch cover “Fortunate Son” by John Fogerty, and it really gets the blood flowing. I like this version better. Punk is the hot sauce to Fogerty’s burrito, the right flavor added to the right foundation. This 7” kicks major ass. It makes me smile inside.
