STRETCH MARKS: Who & What: The Complete Studio Recordings: CD

Sounds Escaping has remastered and reissued two classic Winnipeg punk rock bands recently. While Personality Crisis fall more into the rock’n’roll aspect of punk, Stretch Marks fully land in the hardcore end of the spectrum. This disc collects the entire studio discography of the band and reminds you that while the central prairies of Canada may not have the most famous punk bands in the nation, they produced some of the best. If you’re unfamiliar with the Stretchies, this is the perfect way to get in the know. –Ty Stranglehold (Sounds Escaping, soundsescaping.com)
