Give ‘Em The Boot – V – Review

December 15, 2006

A good round-up of Hellcat bands ranging from psychobilly to ska and all manner of punk. No real surprises, and no real highlights, just like the last time.

Punk-O-Rama – Volume 9 – Review

March 7, 2005

Longest-running series, and a good value. They’re getting harder to discern from each other and the Warped Tour comps, but there’s always a surprise or two.

Punk-O-Rama – 8 – Review

February 22, 2002

Epitaph keeps the bands they’ve got (minus one) and picks up wave after wave of the best young hopefuls, most of whom deserve it.

Rancid – Review

April 1, 2001

22 songs in 38 minutes. Fast, furious, melodic in spite of itself, and pretty damn punk cuz that’s what it wants to be.

Punk-O-Rama – 5 – Review

September 1, 2000

A lotta punk inspires me to smash jewel cases, not the state, so when I wanna relisten to/go-get-the-latest by some of these bands, that says a lot.

Give ‘em the Boot II – Review

April 1, 2000

As Dropkick Murphys claim in their opening track, “The Gang’s All Here.” Then there’s over an hour’s worth of punk, Oi!, rocksteady, reggae, and hardcore.

Old Skars and Upstarts – Review
