LAST SONS OF KRYPTON: Teenage Trash: CS

Teenage Trash is the perfect title for this youthful throwback to early punk. It’s stupid, fun, upbeat, humorous, and sounds like it was recorded in a large metal can. Apparently, these guys were the most hated band in the Wisconsin scene around ‘95 for their shitty attitudes and antics but nobody could stop playing their records, and this re-release is a big deal for a lot of folks. Deservedly so, this album is boiling over with restless, repressed energy that can only come from some brats from Manitowoc, Wis. If you want depth and nuance you best look somewhere else, but if you simply want some fast, pissy, goofy punk to put a smile on your face and a stomp in your step, get this now.
