Punx Unite—Leaders of Today: CD
A collection of thirty-two so-called “relevant punk bands of today,” of which a grand total of three truly stand out, with the remaining “leaders of today” falling somewhere between “very mildly diverting, like a heat rash” and “why bother?” Special mention goes to Complete Control who, in addition to saddling themselves with such a creative and original moniker (yes, I’m being sarcastic), have ripped off Cocksparrer so blatantly that I’m surprised they’re not up to their eyeballs in lawsuits. Bands contributing to this include Toxic Narcotic, The Voids, Monster Squad, Cheap Sex, the Casualties and a myriad of parrot punk bands heavy on the Crazy Color and fashion but anemic on originality, conviction, or substance. Maybe I’m getting a bit old, jaded, and cynical, but as I listen to this, I can’t help but think the only thing relevant here is the Dead Kennedy’s line, “Punk’s not dead it just deserves to die when it becomes another stale cartoon.” –jimmy (Sideonedummy)
