RESOLUTION 242: Self-titled: CD

Reggae’s most obvious influence on punk reveals itself in the punk ska bands of the past and present. The U.K.’s Resolution 242 takes it a step further by producing traditional reggae with a slight punk influence. The confrontational, radical lyrics are well researched and entertaining. Forget pretentious “stoner rock” a la Eyehategod. There are other non-hippies partying, too. Sans patchouli and everything!
