RADE: This Is a Riot: CD

This group of actual SLC punks are still under the legal drinking age, and are so much cooler and invested than me or any other thirty-something “back in my day” assholes who would write them off. This album is full of all the heart, anger, and political disappointment a punk album rightfully deserves in 2020. It’s loud, it’s fast, it’s a little obscene, and it’s exactly what I want to see when I go to a show. Fuck the cops, fuck Brigham Young, and fuck you. The kids are alright. Long live Rade. –Donna Ramone (Gnarcan)
