USELESS, THE: Putting the Rock Back into Rock Bottom: CD

Not sure why this got to Razorcake HQ now as it was recorded in 2008, but that aside this disc contains twelve tracks of standard-issue punk rock with some unfortunate ska chinka chinkas thrown in for good measure. Not entirely useless (no pun intended), there is some degree of cleverness in the songwriting which runs the gamut of shitty jobs, getting drunk, and getting harassed by the cops though not necessarily in that order. The vocals are at times reminiscent of Tesco Vee, of all people, which isn’t a bad thing.
