Generators Tyranny

L.A.'s reigning kings of street punk are back with their third record and it's a keeper. This five-piece features ex-members of Schleprock and the Choice and is chock full of old-time influences ranging from the U.K. Subs to Sham 69. Life in sunny southern California has had an impact on these boys, as some melodic elements sneak into songs like "Coming Down." They're good enough to get some of the bigger bands of this movement looking over their shoulders. (TKO)
