Album Review

L.A.'s Pistol Grip makes a lasting impression on The Shots From the Kalico Rose, firing off one of 2001's finest authentic punk releases. "Crucifixion Politix" rolls out of the speakers like a bar fight spilling out onto the sidewalk, with blazing guitars that rival vintage Rancid. Vocalist Stax takes aim at religious and political hypocrisy as his bandmates stir up a melodic but incendiary Ruts and Stiff Little Fingers-influenced assault on tunes like "Aristocratic State" and "Get Up to Get Shot Down" that never disappoint. PG brings their sound to new heights on "Bourgeoisie," which can only be described as "punkabilly," complete with a piercing, repetitious single piano note. As it plays out, Kalico Rose never buckles, unveiling one feisty rocker after another. Even the outdated sentiment behind "F**k the P.M.R.C." can't keep it from being an exhilarating anti-censorship rant. Sure to please fans of Dropkick Murphys at their hardest, as well as any of the aforementioned points of influence, Pistol Grip may be revivalists, but punk rock this genuine and reactionary is always welcome. ~ John D. Luerssen, Rovi


Formed: 1997 in Los Angeles, CA

Years Active: '90s, '00s

Led by the fierce vocals of frontman Stax, punk revivalists Pistol Grip emerged from the Los Angeles underground in 1997, debuting a year later on one side of a split with local street punks Fully Loaded entitled Sounds of the Street, Vol. 1. Still in high school when they formed, the guys steadily built a strong following around their hometown scene and word of mouth eventually brought them to the attention of BYO Records, who hooked them up for their first album.
