DOUBLE FISTED: 1979: CD

Punk trio from Phoenix that roars down the sonic highway but lets your brain hit the off ramp for a coffee break when you need it. The punk is flavored with a metallic coating that goes down smooth most of the time. I am thinking mid-period Gang Green or Suicidal Tendencies. The title track is actually more spoken word but tells a story of a Friday night gone bad. There are some live instrumental songs added onto the end and the band wraps up the proceedings with a tribute to everyone’s favorite 1970s show villain from The Dukes of Hazzard. Yee-haw! –Sean Koepenick (Records With Attitude, doublefisted.bandcamp.com)
