DRINKER’S PURGATORY: Self-titled: CD

This record is a perfect example of why punk rock is better now, in 2006, than it ever has been. People that whine that punk reached its peak in 1977 or 1985 or 1992 or whatever bullshit year they stopped paying attention need to shut the fuck up, because Drinker’s Purgatory are the personification of punk rock. Have you ever had one of those nights when you can’t decide if you wanna drink a 40 with your friends under a bridge or hold your girlfriend’s hair outta the toilet while she’s puking but you can’t make up your mind so you just huff spray paint and go swimming instead? This record is the soundtrack to nights like that. It’s an awesome album and I give it the highest recommendation possible!
