Tirekickers Striaght To Heck

Toronto's Tirekickers return with a new line-up, new label and brand spanking new record. The material on this is varied to say the least. It's the type of stuff that borrows from a whole slew of punk and hardcore and winds up not sounding like anything in particular. The one thing that unites the record is a distinctly '80s sound. This works to their advantage because they have the energy to win over the mall punks and the sound to make the old-timers nostalgic. (Laugh Riot)
