HENPECKER: (Band): CD

These Arcata rapscallions mask some smart-aleck social commentary with bar rock tinged tunes. While it ain’t “punk” in the stereotypical mohawk-mania sense, songs like “Chicken Hawk” are considerably more biting and astute than anything SUM-41, Bowling For Soup, or even the Virus have said their entire careers combined.
