USELESS ID: The Lost Broken Bones: CD

Oct 28, 2015

Well, here’s a reissue of a 2008 album that originally came out on Suburban Home. What is there to say? Apart from the fact that they’re from Israel, Useless ID is virtually indistinguishable from the majority of other Fat Wreck bands that have long tilled this same sound—which is a good or terrible thing depending on tastes, right? It’s polished, seamless melodic punk. It’s well-crafted. And depending on your tastes it’s either gonna sound loaded with verve and momentum or overproduced and droll. Your call. Contains a handful of bonus tracks, including a Swingin’ Utters cover.
