EMERGENCY: 1234: CD

So far as I’m able to reckon, this is a modern Canadian skin band that eschews the requisite odes to drinking, blind patriotism, and right-wing warmongering in favor of swipes at the vapidity of factory life, the army, the United States government, and the homogenization of western society. Musically, the band recycles more than their share of riffs, but, on the whole, the tunes work and they sound considerably more authentic than the majority of their bald contemporaries. I dig ’em.
