VARIOUS ARTISTS: Go Contrary, Go Sing: CD

Nov 10, 2008

Point of order: it doesn’t matter who does it—in this case the “who” being members of DOA, Iron Cross, Pop-O-Pies, MDC, Dead Kennedys, Pist, SLF and a bunch of others—unless your name is Woody or Muddy, the odds that whatever music you release in an acoustic format is gonna blow something awful. When you factor a “punk” pedigree into the mix, the odds against good acoustic music resulting become astronomical. This is no exception to that rule.
