PROTON PACKS: Conspiracy ‘66: LP

May 23, 2018

Conspiracy ‘66 is a concept record with songs titled “This Plan Cannot Fail,” “Top-Secret Secret,” “Lockheed ‘71,” “Cold War Extravaganza,” and the likes, so if you’re looking to stew in angst or need a soundtrack to pound your fists of fury, this album ain’t the one. However, if you’re looking for straightforward power chord pop punk, riffing on a mix of the Ramones and a slowed-down Screeching Weasel, this might just do it. –Camylle Reynolds (Mom’s Basement)
