GROUCHO MARXISTS, THE: Manifesto!: LP

Chris Pierce’s new band (technically not “new,” but it took a while for the record to come out), who’s a New Jersey legend who’s been in Doc Hopper and Sinkhole, not to mention recorded a bulk of music to come from the New Brunswick/New York City within the past few years. Most of his previous endeavors were heavy on the Descendents/ALL/Cruz Records influence, and this is no different—it’s poppy but with a hard edge, yet with a fun, goofy sense of humor to it. It’s good to hear Chris is still coming up with good stuff like this.
