Album Review

Oxnard, SC, skatepunks from 1983 with "Intense Energy" (the well-named killer here that originally appeared on the super period compilation Someone's Gonna Get Their Head Kicked In), teen natural amphetamines, and a few real hot tunes. Pummeling edge and clear singing are a real plus. Not exactly T.S.

Pure Adolescents Skate Punk Energy

"Don't be Mistaken" stands right up their with "Adolescents. It has everything a Great Skate Punk record has. Sneering Vocals, Pure Adolescent Energy, and obnoxious as Hell Guitar solos. Also Reccomended: Adolescent's "Adolescents" Agent Orange's "Living in Darkness" ILL Repute's "What Happens Next" and Black Flag's "Damaged" and "Nervous Breakdown EP".
