"For Monkeys" CD (Epitaph)
700 monkeys and 700 years? I'd only need about half a dozen, and I could teach them to play this skanked-up surf/skate/snow punk in about 15 minutes.
"Life On A Plate" CD (Epitaph)
Fuck ABBA and fuck Ace of Base. These guys are a band worth importing. Super catchy pop/punk resembles their heroes, NOFX and Pennywise. The little snowboard punks from Sweden certainly have their punk rock act down, even if they did cop the riff for "Move Your Car" from the Scorpions. The boys from Orebro go off. (TOM)
