Album Review

The Mishaps may be a small part of the larger punk revival, but their approach suggests the classic intensity and power of the Los Angeles scene. Clocking in at a brief six tracks, Get Away Volume is a nostalgic journey into the trashy, rockabilly influenced punk rock landscape of 1983, when bands like T.S.O.L. and the Dead Kennedys took the genre to edgy new heights.
