SCATTER BRAINZ: Board 2 Death: CD

C-grade skater punk. I think they’re shooting for a cross between Circle Jerks, street punk, and a slowed-down D.R.I. but don’t pull off any real well. The vocals are stilted and half-spoken, half-yelled. I will say I loved they included a sound clip of Will Smith from Fresh Prince of Bel-Air on their song “Dead Beat Dad.” That was pretty awesome and funny. Otherwise, there’s not really a lot to work with here. –Kurt Morris (Self-released, theskatterbrainz.bandcamp.com)
