HOT WATER MUSIC: Till the Wheels Fall Off: CD

May 26, 2008

This is Hot Water Music’s second B-sides record, focusing on the latter half of their recorded output, more or less the Epitaph years. Every song brings some quality to the table, ranging from outtakes of their last three records and a few 7”s, to a variety of covers: Circle Jerks, Leatherface, etc. Despite some recent shows, I guess the wheels have fallen off, and that makes this album the spare tire. Its not something to ride on too long, but if you need more than what they’ve released on the full lengths, this holds up. Of course, if you’re missing a proper HWM record, get that first. –Nick Toerner
