Show Review

Thirty3, 800 Octane – Keeping up the numerical theme, let’s call this stylistic showcase Punk Rock 2K1. Today’s HC/punk bands, as evidenced by these two local music machines, are a mighty well-engineered breed–supertight superfast, and superclean, veritable Steve Austins compared to their ragged lo tech progenitors. Their riffs blaze by with practiced perfection, burning the asphalt with their speed. No detours here, just aim for the horizon and let it fly. It is impressive. No denying that. I do wonder, though–is punk rock really supposed to be this “good”? Something to ponder while racing along (Willamette Week)
