UNDERTIPPER: Barely Making Cents: CD

Aug 19, 2016

I have a bit of a unique perspective when it comes to ‘90s punk rock and how it seems to be a sound that is coming back all over the place. It seems like every review period there are a couple more bands doing the Fat Wreck or Fearless Records thing. I was really young when I first got into punk in the mid-’80s, and I love all the early punk and hardcore bands that I was exposed to at the time, but in the early ‘90s I was in my twenties and just starting to pass for what is legally an adult. The bands of that era also mean a lot to me. What does this all have to do with Undertipper? They play ‘90s punk really well. It brings back the feeling of being in my early twenties, listening to loud music, getting drunk, and doing dumb shit. It may not be what I am up to now (wait a minute; I still do all those things), but I can appreciate a trip down memory lane. Will I listen to it much? Probably not, but if you are looking for a nostalgia trip, you could do a lot worse. –Ty Stranglehold (Undertipper, undertipper.bandcamp.com)
