Electric Frankenstein
I'm Not Your (Nothing) (Victory Records)

By: Jeb Branin

I'm guessing that this was also released as a 7"? I dunno, but if not it should have been. This isn't the kind of punk that should be digital. This is too classic. Too raw. Too visceral. Three songs of thick, snappy, lean and mean rawk 'n rule. The title track is a studio cut that shows of the band's energy and vigor. Track two is a cover of "I Was A Punk Before You Were A Punk" originally by THE TUBES. This is the kind of tune that established punk rock as music you dance to, albeit violently! The last tune is "Right On Target" and is performed live with all the slop and swagger you would expect. 1978 style with all of the lessons of the ensuing two decades learned, considered, and discarded. This record is nearly flawless. You just gotta hear this! Man this is an example of why I get mad at people who dis Victory Records as one dimensional. I bet your favorite label hasn't released a record this damn punk lately...
