Sacto Scene Report (TKO Records)

By: Mike SOS

TKO Records has always been true to keeping punk rock about the music and not the intangibles that go along with it, an admirable pursuit for certain. The label's recent installment of the collection they dub as The Scene Report is yet another example of the care they take for the genre, as this volume showcases five Sacramento, CA based punk rock bands with five different punk approaches. From the street punk of Whiskey Rebels and Pressure Point, to the harder, in your face delivery of Killing the Dream, to the garage-esque rock stomp of The Secretions, to the lace up your boots and slam into someone inspired stomp that The Roustabouts prompt, TKO once again gives the listener a solid cross-section of music as well as a good bang for the buck. An affordable alternative to MTV's mall punk, these compilations are perfect for the novice looking to dig deeper, or for the experienced fan looking for new thrills.
