HAXXAN: Self-titled: CD

New, German surf punk that falls somewhere between the Stitches and the Soft Pack. They have that surf, punk jangle to most of their songs, but instead of having a traditional punk structure, they add in a lot of spastic jams and guitar solos. This is a fun record for the punk fan with a longer attention span and a curiosity for new, foreign music (unless you’re from Germany). –Ryan Nichols (Slovenly)
