PUNK AS A DOORNAIL: Flogging the Punk Horse: CD

May 26, 2009

Punk As A Doornail is an incredible, two-piece joke band from OrangeCounty that performs goofy, stupid, brilliant, crass, punk as hell gems like “Bloody Gumballs” and “Dead as a Sad Snail.” The guitarist supposedly plays a guitar converted from an old skateboard, which goes beyond funny and into the realm of honestly awesome. Most thirteen-year-olds in bands write more mature lyrics than these guys, but there’s nothing more enduring than aging rockers singing about giving mothers a break on Mother’s Day by not raping or punching them in the face. I’m in love with this timeless folly.
