PINK SMOKE: No Party: Cassette

Some great mid-tempo punk residing somewhere between the good company of Marked Men and Bad Sports. Coincidentally or not, these songs also happen to be recorded by Mark Ryan and Jeff Burke of Marked Men. That’s not to say these fellas can’t rely on their own merits, no sir. The songwriting seems to reach the level of outstanding on the second side when traces of the Dead Boys’ menacing punk anthems are woven into their already infectious style. I’m looking forward to hearing more from Pink Smoke because I know it’s only a matter of time before they’re offered a proper release.
