JOE Q CITIZEN: With No Due Respect…: CD

Sep 23, 2011

This band is from San Jose, CA, and contains ex-members of the well-liked defunct band Whiskey Sunday. On this effort, they crank out eleven songs of tuneful, melodic punk. While they don’t exactly share the same sound, I can definitely hear a Descendents influence here, especially in the vocal melodies (although the vocal delivery is far more gruff than Milo ever was). It’s a decent effort, and I’ll be curious to see how they mature as a band.
