STEVE CABALLERO: Bandology Vol. 1: CD

If you don’t recognize the name, you don’t skate. Long time pro skateboarder has played in some bands through the years. Featured here are four tracks each by The Faction, Odd Man Out, Shovelhead and Soda. The Faction, probably the most popular band he played with, have been part of the skate rock scene during the early-to-mid ‘80s. Odd Man Out, the next band he played in, were more progressive rock. Shovelhead play grunge that was prevalent during the time period. Soda play a Tilt-ish, female-led pop punk that makes me think that I might actually keep this disc. Also provided are two extra tracks that Mr. Caballero has recorded as projects. I don’t know if people will run out of the house in a manic frenzy to purchase this, but the Soda tracks are pretty damn good and are the highlight for me.
