VARIOUS ARTISTS: Northwest Kicked in the Nuts: CD

A collection of bands from the northwestern United States (duh) that feature at least one female member, including the Die Jobs, Macho Borracho, Antiworld, Amazombies, Sado-Nation (!) and others. While the dominant genre is punk in a myriad of hues, there is the occasional metal tune. Nice concept. Not bad, not spectacular.
