HEROES OF HISTORY: Lightning and Thunder: CD

Cleveland! That’s the first thing that I thought when I put on Lightning and Thunder. I was wrong but close. They’re from Columbus, Ohio. So it’s an Ohio thing, apparently. If you were to ask me what this thing is, I really wouldn’t know what to tell you. It’s hard to put my finger on, but there’s this weird sound currently going on in Ohio and I can tell immediately where it’s from. I know that Ohio isn’t the only place that is putting out carefree, fun, shitty punk rock these days, yet, when I hear something like HOH, it immediately makes me think of bands like The Fucking Cops who are also from there. It’s not classic, timeless music or anything, but I don’t think that’s what they’re going for. However, if you want to bounce around at red light to some lo-fi, funny songs about werewolves and zombies and witches, then give this one a shot.
