Catch 22
Live (Victory Records)

By: Mike SOS

Catch 22's live CD does its part to dispel the myth that ska is dead, as the Long Island crowd that this CD/DVD combo was captured in front of is a raucous, rabid bunch. As for the New Jersey sextet, they sound on the top of their game, as the crisp horns and heavy rhythms that pervade this 21-track disc pulsate on tracks like "Lamont's Lament" and "Chasing the Moon". While the third wave of ska may not be the "in thing" right now, no one told these guys. Catch 22, like its peers in Less Than Jake and Voodoo Glow Skulls, effectively giving off that feel good vibe with the punk rock backbeat, making Catch 22's bouncy and brash live show perfect for the prepubescent Warped Tour purveyors.
