This brings me back. Back to when I was sick of high school, sick of the establishment, sick of the adults that thought they knew what was best. This raw and unforgiving rock reminds me of when I used to sneak into punk rock shows, telling my parents I was at a friend’s house or going to see a movie. This music, a bit more British-sounding than the punk rock I remember seeing, is just as vital and just as important. If kids are listening to this now instead of whatever latest radio pabulum the stations have playing, there is still hope for music. There is still hope, this is the Explosion.
