FRUIT PUNCH: The 7” Collection: CD

Excellent collection of this hardcore band’s singles output, which appears to have been long overdue. Fruit Punch is a band I’ve been familiar with, but I never actually had the chance to track anything down. They fall under the same umbrella as Good Clean Fun or Ten Yard Fight than, say, Crudos or Limp Wrist, but these dudes do a great job of ‘90s/turn-of-the-century, straight-edge hardcore. Twenty-five songs in twenty-five minutes—can you go wrong?
