NASTIES, THE: Discipline: CD

Many of the tracks on this were on The Nasties’ demo CD but appear here in new versions. The Nasties live up to their name with tracks about having “The Shits” and wanting to hit on a friend’s “Hot Sister.” Lyrically, they didn’t do much for me. Musically, the band plays mid-tempo punk rock. They had some cool leads on the track “Piece of Shit” and on their anthem “The Nasties.” The track “Sky Is Falling,” was a short, fast ripper that I liked, but otherwise I thought this was a well-produced snooze fest.
