VARIOUS ARTISTS: Music by People Who Drink Cider in the Gutter: CD

Dec 30, 2008

The cover sums it up: a photo of a guy with a mohawk, holding a forty. The subtitle drives it home: “20 Tracks of U.K. Punk and Ska.” The songs are well recorded, and the tracklist is top-loaded with hardcore, slowly melding into ska-inflected songs. If the idea of a trombone in your punk doesn’t send you running for the hills then, by all means, check this out.
