McRAD / FRONTSIDE FIVE: Split: CD

Frontside Five: Beach punk-sounding skate punk with some metal riffing that was like a mix of Pennywise meets the Stitches. McRad: Former pro skateboarder and one-time member of the Bad Brains, Chuck Treece’s musical on and off again, long-time music project. Feels as unfocused as the Bad Brains’ Build a Nation. Dub, punk, rock, and, I believe, ambient.
