UNIT F: Comes the Day: CD

These Orange County (Calif.) locals have been at it a while now—I personally remember coming across these guys a few good years ago, though I believe them to be a completely different lineup with the exception of vocalist Mel Schantz. That said, this CD sounds as fresh and full of piss and vinegar (as my father used to say) as I remember them to be. Schantz has a somewhat unique delivery that comes across as some unholy mix of classic Southern Californian melodic and East Coast street punk. Song themes tend toward the sociopolitical, but thankfully fall short of, say, Anti-Flag. Circle Jerk Greg Hetson is featured on a track but for the life of me, I couldn’t tell. –Garrett Barnwell (Self-released, unitfmusic.com)
