PAA KII: Self-titled: CD

It’s gotta be a drag sometimes to come from an area synonymous for a type of music. Pää Kii hails from Finland, an area long known for some world-class thrash bands, but that ain’t the kinda hash they’re dishin’ up here. Instead, you get a choice meal of catchy punk with a little bit o’ garage here and a dash o’ Spits-styled thud-punk there. I know the “if it ain’t loud, fast, and Discharge-derived, it ain’t shit” crowd are gonna howl with disapproval, but this is nonetheless some mighty fine ruckus makin’.
