Well-played and aggressive as shit punk with the intensity of ’80s hardcore and something that’s distinctively their own. Only three songs apiece here. Sort of a waste. I think split CDs should be four songs each, minimum. This ain’t a 7″, hoss. Load that thing up.
Smogtown is influenced by the L.A. roots of Redd Kross, Circle Jerks, and, to a lesser extent, Black Flag. They have a sense of humor, write engaging and funny lyrics, and write feverishly fast and high-strung riffs.
