TEXAS THIEVES: Killer on Craig’s List: CD

Wow, these guys are apparently mighty prolific. This is the second full-length in as many months I’ve heard from these San Franciscans, and I gotta say, they’ve managed to keep the quality high. Ten more tracks here of skate punk that sounds like it could’ve come outta Orange County circa 1983, which is not to say they sound dated or anything, because they don’t. If you’re looking for some grade-A tunes from the MIA/DI school of hardcore, you’d be hard pressed to find a band doing it better than these boyos, ‘cept maybe Smogtown, but they’re broken up so even mentioning them is a moot exercise. I think I founds me a new favorite band and I’m friggin’ stoked.
