F-71: Self-titled: CD-R

L.A.-based punk rockin’ here, straddling a line between very late-‘70s beach punk and what came before. There’s a lot of potential in evidence here. When they get a good head of steam going the songs sound good and meaty, but much of what’s here sounds more like works in progress primarily in execution than finished product. Would really be interested in where they’re at sonically in a year or so. –Jimmy Alvarado (Devour, [email protected])
