VARIOUS ARTISTS: ClePunk.comp: CD

The Dexter Chumley Attack! As far as I can tell, one of the few sound reasons to live in Cleveland in this day and age, but what a reason! From their two brisk tracks here alone, I’m fixing to pack up and go, and while I’m there I might check out Allergic to Whores, which I think would round out the whole of Clevo’s full-throttle thrash scene. Other styles represented by the twenty-four bands here include streetpunk, ska, all kinds of poppy punk, and a few heavier acts like Disengage and Los Fiascos. As scene comps go, not bad, but records this diverse generally leave me limp. But the Dexter Chumley Attack! Gracious! And, oh yeah, I seriously hope God kills me before I ever have to hear the red hot chili poop of the Kirkendahl Voyd again.
