SCOTCH GREENS: Professional: CD

On the case is a sticker, which says, “punk rock and American roots. When was the last time you heard originality?” With regards to the first part, when I think “punk rock and American roots,” I think of the Gun Club, The Blasters, Los Lobos and maybe The Knitters. As for the second part, outside of the occasional inclusion of a banjo, what I’m hearing, while not terrible by any stretch, ain’t exactly teeming with originality.
