LOWER CLASS BRATS: Rock N’ Roll Street Noize: CD

It’s funny. These guys have been around since 1995 and this is my first exposure to them. I’m going to admit something few people ever do: this is one of those bands that I’ve always thought of as the kind that I didn’t really need to listen to to know what they sound like. I imagined this to be mid-tempo street punk with gang vocals and slick production values. That’s exactly what I got. I see a lot of kids sporting LCB T-shirts, so I’m also going to assume that they have a respectably sized fan base, which means I may or may not be missing out on following them any further. However, I’m going to bet on the latter and instead wish them continued success and politely part ways here.
