Some pop for your punk. U.K. band Officer Gotcha lists the Buzzocks, Ramones, Mr. T Experience, and Jawbreaker as influences—just to name a few—and this couldn’t be more clear as day. Think Propagandhi with brattier, nasally Brit vocals. Thirteen songs are packed onto this self-released CD. Look, it’s not exactly cutting edge stuff, but if straight-up pop punk songs with rock’n’roll guitar is your tip, you’ll probably dig Officer Gotcha.
