VARIOUS ARTISTS: Traveling with George: 2 x CD

A few L.A. veterans making appearances here—like the Gears, RF7, and Symbol Six—alongside more recent hellraisers like the Livingstons, Spermometers, Puke For Breakfast, TV Eye (who again are mind-blowingly kick ass, but I digress), Standard And Poor, American Jihad, and tons of others, enough in all to fill two discs with punk rockin’ of all kinds of hues and shades. As can be expected, there is a clunker to be found here and there, but, for the most part, this ain’t shabby at all—diverse enough to keep things flowing nicely, yet very much on the “rock” side of the punk fence.
