Well, I doubt anyone within the underground community missed out on these guys, but I’ll post this anyway simply because they rock. Keith Morris (ex-Black Flag, Circle Jerks etc.) teamed up with members from Rocket From the Crypt, The Burning Brides and Redd Kross to form OFF! – a band that to put it simple decided to ignore what happened with Punk Rock since 1981 and ended up with something that weirdly enough sounds fresh in 2011! Their first full length (entitled First Four EP’s) is hands down an amazing release, offering sixteen classic early HC blasts in less than twenty minutes. There’s been rave reviews all over the place but to add my own two cents; this is what the Circle Jerks second album could’ve sounded like!
The album can be found pretty much all over from online shops – even on Amazon – and they’re touring Europe – including Sweden! – this fall so make sure to check them out! And in case you need a incentive, check out the clip of their show at House of Vans here. My pal Troy who runs the Bigfoot Diaries blog recently interviewed Keith, so check it out here.
