NOT A PART OF IT: Don’t Let the Bastards Down: CD

Oregon’s Not A Part Of It released their first full length, self-proclaimed as a “‘77 influenced punk rock record that will make your butt hairs stand up and dance.” I get some Clash vibes from the bridge on “It’s Been a Cwazy Week Weatherwise” and “Contemporary Charismatic Criminals.” This album is heavy on the Stiff Little Fingers influence, with catchy sounds of street punk and hints of oi throughout. ­­–Cynthia Pinedo (notapartofit.bandcamp)
