PISTOL GRIP: Another Round: CD

So much better than their debut, The Shots from the Kalico Rose, that it’s surprising that this is the same band. The street punk is still there but the music sounds more mature. The production takes them off the streets and makes them sound more legitimate. They seem to have more hooks than a bunch of fisherman on a chartered fishing boat this time around. The music is definitely more rocking than they have been in the past, almost like they have taken the influences of Youth Brigade (since they are on the band’s label) and punk pioneers of the past to truly fine tune their sound. Now I have to make the effort to go see them live.
