A New orleans band with members from American outlaws. The lineup is/was Jessie on vocals, Jamie on vocals and guitar, Will on bass and Jacob on drums. This demo is all they released but in 2011 the band emerged again without Jessie on vocals so who knows if we might get a proper release in the future.

The band is not in any way great but compared to American outlaws its like a diamond phoenix arising from an hiv infested spunkbowl.
As one might understand from the bandname and the Uncle Sam outfit Jamie sometimes wear on stage this is a quite patriotic band. But somehow i cant really get past the fact that the whole patriotic part is a bit of a joke. A joke that tries to be offensive but only ends up being childish, but i guess the big joke is on those who get offended by it.
The quality of the songs differ in quality but some really great songs can be found. The song Out in the city that is as catchy as Oi! songs can get thanks to its great chorus. Both Ameriskins and Here's for USA are songs you just have to love (unless your on the recieving end of the bombs falling) with some conquer all/love it or leave it lyrics that will have even the most conservative liberals running for the hill.
Wish this band could release a proper album so they can show their true potential.

  1. I actually liked this quite a bit. When I listened to "Drink, fight, fornicate," I thought of GG Allin, the title damn near sounds like his "Drink, fight and Fuck," and I have the feeling that was the purpose. "Here's for USA" made me think of Billy Milano and SOD for some strange reason. Not a bad release.
