Album Review

Leftover Crack return their fire-stoked railroad spike to society's eye with the subtlety-banishing F**k World Trade. The spike's iron cooled after 2001's Mediocre Generica, and little was heard from the New York squatter punks. But World Trade makes up for lost time — it's provoking and nonconforming in double and triple amounts. "Clear Channel (F**k Off!)" is a rallying cry even without its East Coast hardcore rumble, while "Life Is Pain" and "Gang Control" return to the scraggly ska-punk sound that's the band's strongest side. As a vocalist, Stza is, well, limited. But to spit vitriol and passion, you don't have to be the Velvet Fog. His pained whine leads the boys through a host of hyper upbeats and amplified hardcore choruses, and the kicker is that this record is more melodic than 99 percent of what the punk-pap army offers. ("Rock the 40 Oz." and the acoustic lead-up to "One Dead Cop"'s main progression are both highlights.) Leftover Crack are street-level revolutionaries from their lyrics, to their cover art, all the way through to their energizing, uncompromising music. While their message can be both visually and sonically bludgeoning, its candor is refreshing in an age of middling media, partisan politics, and social second-guessing. It's real revolution rock.

Customer Reviews

LISTEN UP

This album is not advocating the death of the innocent people in 9/11, morons. Anyone who does that is obviously sick in the head. World trade literally enslaves people in third-world countries. Good people work their whole lives away just to get by on mere scraps. It's simply saying that our "manifest destiny" mentality is just plain wrong. Those people in the World Trade Centers didn't deserve to die, but those buildings did deserve to fall. (Basically, if you give it a bad rating because you don't like the cover, you are an idiot.)

blown away to this

Leftover Crack is one the most politcal frustrated punk bands that will tear the room apart...but for all you anti punk rockers and also punks yall should get this album becuase it is all good with punk, metal, raggae, screaming, instrumental, and other wierd sounds at the end of songs.

Crack Rock at its best!

Let me take you through a short journey through the crack rock steady beat. Longer than the high that crack gives, but just as addictive:

1. Clear Channel (F**k Off!): Re-using the syncopated guitar from the introduction of Mediocre Generica, this explosive opening to the album shows biting hatred for syndicated radio and the music it plays. With erratic key changes and some excellent vocals by Stza, this song perfectly sets the tone for the whole album.

2. Life is Pain: A sarcastic look into the lives of Americans today. This energetic ska-punk track fits well with the rest of the album, but is not a highlight.

3. Burn Them Prisons: The third track tells of a plan to take down the oppressive prison system America is running in this day and age. The usual strong vocals and edgy riffs permeate this song. A sure hit for any politica-punk fan.

4. Gang Control: Opening with an enviable bass riff, this ska-punk anthem is one of the most well-written and best songs of the album. I reccomend anybody curious about the band to download this song as a crack rock litmus test.

5. Super Tuesday: One of the most in-your-face songs of the album. This song is a Molotov cocktail of raw political anger, and never lets up.

6. Via Sin Dios: My least favorite on the album. This track feels a bit like filler, but it serves as a great buildup for the bset track on the album:

7. Feed The Children (Book of Lies): This song is, for lack of a better adjective, awesome. It's the most original song on the album, with an unmistakable ska riff and an incredible string-and-percussion bridge. In my opinion, this song is the best of Leftover Crack.

8. One Dead Cop: An extremely emotionally driven song, One Dead Cop is probably the most controversial of the album. It tells an often-misunderstood message to its listeners: kill cops. Many take this literally, but in truth, the "killing of cops" is a metaphor for the absolute need to deconstruct and reform the police system, which Leftover Crack believes is "just another gang". An effective song indeed.

9. Ya Can't Go Home: The embodiment of the lonliness and hardship of living life from show to show, living off of friends and just trying to stay alive. It's obvious that it was written at the low point in the band's lifespan. For many, it's emotion seems distant yet extremely present at the same time. An EXCELLENT song.

10: Rock the 40 oz.: The perfect way to pick someone up after a cold track like Ya Can't Go Home. Pure punk down to it's roots, the "let's party and not care" attitude of the song has surely become an anthem for many.

11. Soon We'll be Dead: By far the oddest track on any punk album in recent years. A jaunty tune in the style of a good ole German drinking song. The band croons about living alone with only their brains, their friends, and their booze. This one should be on every jukebox in every punk bar in New York.

12: Gringos Son Puercos Feos: Another raw political fist-pumper too add to Leftover Crack's collection. Has a few truly great musical moments, but cannot seem to keep up with some of the other tracks.

13: Operation M.O.V.E: To close this cacophany of an ablum, Leftover Crack pulls out all of the stops and unleashes unbridles fury upon the listener. Stza screams, almost as if in agony, about the wrongdoings of war and the needlessness of fighting. One can almost feel the pain as it's played out. After the song finishes, there is a 6 minute cooldown which serves almost as a recap of the album. The last few minutes of the album really show that Leftover Crack can do more than just scream and yell about war and killing. It leaves you stunned.

In short, F**k World Trade is a controversial headbanger with a lot of feeling and a lot of talent. This belongs in any respectable punk rock collection.

Biography

Formed: 2000 in New York, NY

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s

Saddled with one of those names that sounds like it was a late-night joke that ended up accidentally sticking, New York punks Leftöver Crack at least have the self-possession and sense of humor to stick a Spinal Tap-esque umlaut in their logo. Musically blending crusty hardcore punk, ska, and some tongue-in-cheek death metal influences, Leftöver Crack are best described in terms of their unapologetically leftist rabble-rousing politics. Leftöver Crack formed in 2000, as their parent band, Choking...
