Featuring members of Success, Shell Corporation, Time Again and Madcap, The Drowns
is a new band that seemingly came out of nowhere. Expect to hear ten street punk jams of the highly melodic variety. Think Red City Radio meets Bouncing Souls and... well, the other bands these guys still play or have played in. While being ridiculously catchy at times, they still pack plenty of grit that can peel the bark off of a tree.
The Bay Area. There might not be gold in them thar hills anymore, but there is never a shortage of great bands. From Dead Kennedys to No Use For a Name and everything in between, it's constantly producing gold. Civil War Rust
is the newest shiny nugget offered up. They are a unique combination of catchy, clever, efficient and self deprecating. Playing fun songs with substance is something Civil War Rust has been doing since day one, and their live shows show why they have been melting the frosty hearts of punk rockers since the turn of the decade
offer less than inspiring tunes about broken hearts and downing sudsy cold ones. File under "punk".
