Horace Pinker Pop Culture Failure

One of the problems with pop punk is that there are so many damn bands out there it's hard to keep up. The unfortunate result is that some guys get left out in the cold in favour of the Blink 182's of the world. Horace Pinker is one of those bands. They've been around for close to ten years and evolved through several line-up changes. Originally from California, they now reside in Chicago and they're back after a three year absence and joined by former Jawbreaker bassist Chris Bauermeister, although he didn't play on this record. The material on this is a good blend of Down By Law, Jawbreaker and some of that Fat/Epitaph style pop that the kids are going wild for. Makes you wonder why they're not a lot bigger. (Jump Up)
