Against All Authority - 24 Hour Roadside Assistance

Hopeless, 2000, CD

Out of the bands that gained mainstream popularity playing this punk/ska style in the 90s not so many of them were really that punk rock. It was all quite catchy and well-produced. It wasn't scuzzy or snotty or not giving a fuck enough.

Here though they have that aesthetic and attitude, trying to pay homage to true punk rock. I know Operation Ivy had a similar vibe but that was earlier on in the 90s and also that had more of an upbeat, party feel. Here they sound absolutely sick of the system. Which is how it should be for this kind of band.

The music doesn't really differ that much from their other records. There are still the rabid basslines underpining the songs and the occasional slow ska parts that make it more interesting than straight forward punk rock.

The lyrics are socio/political which may just be your thing instead of all those other bands singing about god knows what.
