Released by H8-Piece Records in 2008.
After the fall of Last laugh Mike and the guitarist started this band. Mike is still on vocals (wich is quite hard to miss), Chas and Max both play guitar, Juan plays bass and Jeff plays drums.
When this record was released i thought it was superb but after listening to it a couple of times it turns into more of a mess or atleast the broken pieces of various things that could have made a great album but not really put together in the best way.
The all-around sound is more than ok but somewhere on the line i just loose intrest in most of the songs. Most of the songs all sound the same wich is ok at most but then here and there some gems can be found. The song Aggravated assault is a good example of how great this band can sound when it's done right. The song has a catchy bassline some good guitar-spots and a catchy melody all mixed in with a great chorus and cliché but fun lyrics. The song No such thing is a whole other story though. The highs and lows in the song feel as if they where arranged by a mongoloid. One of the longest verses (add on that Mike's monotone frogvoice) leading up to one of the most forced singalong choruses i have ever heard. The lyrics are just childish and Mike almost raps in some parts of the song.... and dont get me started on the whole "yo-kid-muttafukka-lingo" that opens up the song.
Their cover on Dire straits song Walk of life is one of the best crossculture covers i have ever heard and for those who cant imagine that song working in a punk/oi kind of way really need to download the album and take a listen. (Duck and cover Vol.2 just found its opening track)
