Hockey. Alcohol. Punk rock. Mix in equal parts and get ready to hit the ice flailing. Long Island’s own are at it again with Dynasty, and no, it’s not a hockey-themed tribute to the horrible 1979 KISS album with the same name. No, this is straight-up NY hardcore, high-sticked deep into your face until it’s wiggling around inside your frontal lobe. This latest lineup of songs from TMA sit nicely alongside my The Hanson Brothers rekkids (Nomeansno’s alter ego hockey band) and I’d still love to catch one of TMA’s rollicking live sets that they’ve been giving their audiences the last sixteen years or so. Limited to 250 copies of 150 gram colored vinyl, including a CD of the rekkid and a pint coaster with the band’s logo! Gloves off, volume up!
