SUPERSLEUTH: Thirty-One Months: CD

In the annals of suckdom, this will definitely make it into the “Faboo Fifty.” Not only are they trying desperately to relive the glory days of the whole straight edge trip with what sounds like a grand total of two records to reference, they also cover Minor Threat’s “Bottled Violence” and leave exactly one note intact. The result of their efforts over the course of 13 songs is that they sound like a weak, 12th-rate Uniform Choice cover band (who they also cover, incidentally), who, in turn, at their best were no more than a weak, 12th-rate Minor Threat cover band. Next time, append the band name with “a lame tribute to a scene we know nothing about.”
