DISKORDS, THE: Heart Full of Napalm: 7″

The promo sheet that came with this release sez, “The Diskords range in age from 12 to 14 years old. They all attend middle school together here in Portland, Oregon.” If I had been in a band when I was thirteen, I’d have spent all my time trying to perfect the riff to “Smells Like Teen Spirit.” That said, this is pretty good! Catchy, short, pop punky songs (think: a more poppy early Queers). And, come on! Twelve year-olds singing songs like “Cops Took Mommy Away”? Punk rock!
