Review: Maximum Rock N’ Roll (January 2012)

There is something to be said for awesome packaging like a partially homemade gatefold sleeve with a big booklet that looks like a children’s book. What is even more awesome is when you put the record on and it’s good. These folks play quirky, catchy, upbeat pop-punk songs that have tons of hooks. At times there are certain elements of of porch punk that come into the mix like country drum beats and some twang in the guitar but it doesn’t take over the whole record. Fans of stuff on Plan-it-X Records should search this out. (PA)
