Various Punch Drunk IV

Newly relocated to the East Coast paradise of Richmond, VA, TKO Records returns with another edition of foot-stomping fun that showcases the array of street punkers and ass-kickers that grace their roster. Although compilations have a built-in tendency to be hit and miss, there are plenty of hits on here to keep you occupied. With a mix of new, unreleased, previously released and vinyl-only tracks from the likes of the Krays, Smogtown, Cocknoose, Hollywood Hate, Those Unknown, Electric Frankenstein and 18 others, this gives you a good idea of the staying power of this label. And even though the street punk genre may soon go the way of ska punk, a lot of the bands are still built to last. (TKO)
