LOVE SONGS: All Branches, No Trunk: CD

Don’t let the name fool you, unless your idea of a love song is an ode to shaving your balls. Various Bay Area punk rock miscreants, including that one guy from Your Mother, join forces here for a goofy, fun album that sounds like punk rock without falling into a predetermined musical niche. It’s a lot like Toys That Kill, but less skewed and with lots of little guitar parts that make me think that somebody in the band is really into Iron Maiden. I love the artwork, too. Good stuff.
