STUNTMEN, THE: Self-titled: CD

Punk rock served straight up with a sidecar of rock to help it all go down. These cats sound a bit older than the “parrot” punk kiddie crowd—lived a bit, fucked up on occasion, maybe ain’t quite yet learned not to keep hand from flame, but certainly not gonna preach like they have all the fuckin’ answers. I can easily see ‘em plopped mid-slot at Cafe NELA with Barrio Tiger and Million Kids on the bill. –Jimmy Alvarado (Self-released)
