ONLY CRIME: To the Nines: CD

This is a band featuring All/Descendents drummer Bill Stevenson providing the backbeat, which means that the proceedings are wound tighter than Tarantino on crank. The pop quotient isn’t as overt here as in his other more famous bands, but these guys have more than their share of hooks, even if they’re sneakier about how they unload them on an unsuspecting listener, and are capable of some pretty solid tunes in their own right.
