DSC: We Are the Drug Store Cowboys: CD

This started off really well with a catchy uptempo punker tune, “Captain Chaos,” but my attention went right out the window when the ska punk thing kicked in on the next song. Bracing myself, I soldiered on and, thankfully, that was the only tune to try and dangle its toes into the Ska Punk Zero Tolerance Zone I keep myself in these days. The rest keep things peppy, with a sound that leans towards the mid-‘80s not-quite-as-hard-as-others hardcore. Sometimes they sound like a less metal Beyond Possession, which ain’t exactly an insult. Not bad at all.
