JACK PALANCE BAND: Get This Shit under Way: LP

Nov 16, 2010

Remember that day when you realized that life isn’t fair and it doesn’t have to be? Do you remember that day when you realized that someone richer and stupider would always have control over your life in some way, shape, or form? Remember that day when punk stopped promising a widespread revolution? Stack ten years on top of that. Give it a flat tire, an eviction notice, an unplanned pregnancy, and some sort of previously preventable disease. The Jack Palance Band are wiser than their years. If you’ve been in the DIY game for more than five years, have swallowed your fair share of blood, eaten several crow, and had your ideals smashed into the smallest of pieces—but you still rub those pieces shiny for good luck—it’s time for you to discover the Jack Palance Band. Give it time if it doesn’t hit immediately. Yeah, yeah, I know this is a re-release from almost a decade ago, but this is the first time it’s been on vinyl and it sounds even more pertinent with every passing day. Dudes don’t get more solid and defiance rarely ever ages this well. One of the cornerstones of modern DIY punk; shit you not.
