I just saw this band in front of their home town crowd in Philadelphia and I gotta tell ya that they were really good. Real hard sounding Punk Rock that reminded me of Negative Approach or even early G.B.H.. They played this album in it's entirety and it sounded really good live, but it sounds even better recorded. Growled out vocals with nasty guitar riffs all being paced by a nice and tight rhythm section. These songs will get stuck in your head, especially if you read the great lyrics to these songs. Shutdown (about greedy record labels), You Are The Fool (about scene rumors), It's Not Right (about Matthew Sheppard) are all kick ass tunes. This band has something to say and you should listen. For some thought provoking REAL Punk Rock music look no further than Cranked Up!. Coming to a town near you real soon.
