It’s a great day here on the CPRA news desk. The Pueblo based gunslingers, Last Reel Hero have released their brand-new album, “Back To The Sun”. It’s been a couple of years since their last release. So, we are very excited for some new music from LRH. You can read our thoughts on that one here, https://coloradopunkrockarmy.com/2018/10/12/last-reel-hero-s-t/. So, let’s dig into “Back To The Sun”. In case you didn’t read the link above. The band gets their name from a line in the movie, “The Harder They Come”. 

The record starts with, “Rudest Gun In The West”. It’s mellow and a perfect introduction. “The Heat And The Pressure” is next and you can feel the tempo rising. It’s fast with that familiar “Pick It Up”, beat. The horns and gang vocals are awesome. The guitar riffs are unexpected but add that killer ska punk sound. If you haven’t started dancing by now, you my friend have no soul. The next track is “Shotgun”. Check out the rad video below.

“Shotgun: is a callback to simpler times, when life was easy. The next song is, “Ludlow Mine”. It’s a tribute to the workers at the Ludlow Massacre. “The Ludlow Massacre was a watershed moment in American labor relations. Socialist historian Howard Zinn described it as “the culminating act of perhaps the most violent struggle between corporate power and laboring men in American history”.[9] This a wonderful track.

“Away From Me”, is next up and speeds the tempo back up. That rad ska punk sound returns. This track is about unity and reclamation. The bass, guitar, drums are amazing. “Back To The Sun”, returns to the western theme. It feels a bit on the northern soul side, but uniquely American in story. It’s about not giving up, no matter the stakes. “All In” comes in with a vengeance. The ska punk is strong on this track. I can’t help but tap my toe. 

“Rockin’ On Time” is the next track on the list. It continues a rad Jamaican beat. I can see this track getting mixed with several other songs from the genre. DJ’s will love this track. “One Fine Day” is about reuniting with friends and loved ones. Be sure to check out the video below. It speaks of hope during times of darkness. 

“Looting And Shooting”, brings us to the end of the line. The horns have an old west Spanish feel to them. While the organ fits in perfectly adding a perfection of ambiance. Now I am not sure if this song is about Miami Police Chief Walter Headley. He was the first person to use the phrase “Looting and Shooting” in a press conference on December 26, 1967. “Headly announced that six three-man teams of officers equipped with “shotguns and dogs” would respond to the “young hoodlums” from “Negro districts” in Miami with lethal force[1][11] and stated “his men have been told that any force, up to and including death, is proper when apprehending a felon”.[12]” Source wikipedia.

It terrifies me to think that this intolerable act of racism still existed in the United States less than 100 years ago. Sadly, racism will never go away. The only thing we can do is prevent it from continuing. Now this track could also have a way simpler meaning within the storyline and the LRH universe. I of course always read a bit too much into music, but that’s me. 

So how is Last Reel Hero’s “Back To The Sun”? This record is a must have for any ska lover, any lover of Colorado, and anyone who enjoys well written music. I will be adding this record to my nominees for best local album of 2022. I am really hoping we get a vinyl release sometime soon. Until then my friends, you can listen and purchase here, https://lastreelhero.bandcamp.com/

So my first question about Undissassembled are they really the Young Ones in disguise?

via GIPHY

Is Undissassembled really a reincarnation of the Young Ones? The reason I pose this question is their new album, “So Assembled”?” reeks of tongue in cheek humor, hormonal rage, and all sorts of questions about life itself. It’s also a rad throwback to punk’s simpler times. The lyrics are simple, the beat fast. There’s no sad bois on this record. Some of my favorite tracks are, “Bread”, “Mama’s Skinhead”, “I’m Not Joe Nazi”, “Out Of Beer”, “In The Gutter” and “I’m Rowed Out”.  

When I say Undissassembled is definitely one of Denver’s best and upcoming bands to watch. Do it, so you can say you saw them before everybody else. Or wait for your grandma to buy you a copy of their CD. “So Assembled?” is getting my nomination for the best Colorado release of 2022.

From the band that brought you amazing hits like “Aaron’s On Heroin”, “Kyle’s In The Attic Again”, and “Jim Jones Slumber Party” here comes People Corrupting People (AKA PCP) latest release, “Love Bug”. “Love Bug”, although part of the Animal Cornicles has a different more experimental feel to it. Some bands tend to stick to their old habits and change nothing. This can lead some fans to steer clear and seek out other bands for the same type of music. Ska and Ska punk are notorious for producing the same “Pick It Up Beat” over and over again. Don’t get me wrong I love that beat, but sometimes I need a new and different sound.

“Love Bug”, brings the funk, the punk, and new sounds to an already fantastic PCP discography. Some of my favorite tracks are “Everyone Else”, “Deja Vu”, “Pogo Pup”, “Taking Tea With Demons”, “Bored Meeting”, “Follow Me” (Uncle Kracker Cover), “Married Not Buried”, and “Cocoa Blues”. Recent controversy this past August has put PCP into the CPRA national news feed. The local authorities found no harm; however the local Karen’s were very disturbed. It tuns out some of the skaters at the local park are way rad, but their mom’s are not.

It’s a rad day here at CPRA as Denver’s All Waffle Trick released their new single for “Spaceship” just last week! I wanted to know a bit more about this awesome track so I reached out to the band for comment. Per Jeff Giles, “From the first time I watched A New Hope, I knew I wanted nothing more than to get to this place. This place where this magic of space wizards living inside a western and across the stars.” Per drummer Alex “Curly” Mark, “Star Wars has always made me feel like THAT galaxy isn’t quite so far as it seems”.

With Star Wars Day quickly approaching on May 4, 2022 will we get more tracks from All Waffle Trick? Now that would be rad. In the meantime check out the new single here, https://allwaffletrick.bandcamp.com/.

Denver based punk rock band One Time Crime released their new record “Kill The Lights on January 4, 2022. It’s been almost 5 years since their last release, “The Finale E.P.”. A whole lot has changed since 2017. The world has pretty much gone to as Ozzy Man say’s, “Destination F#cked”. Since then, I find myself needing more things to use as a pick me up, like music, movies, and time with friends. 

We lost an entire year due to Covid and it’s still going! Denver lost some iconic music venues, bars and bands even broke up. So, when I found out One Time Crime dropped a new record. I knew I had to listen immediately. “Kill The Lights” did not disappoint. In fact, it blew my mind. That serotonin I needed was there. It just needed a good healthy trigger. Although the subject matter may be dark. It sparked a fire deep inside me. I love the combination of 90s punk. OI, and modern punk rock.

Here are some tracks you need to listen to immediately! “Just A Dream” – This track defines my thoughts on 90’s punk. It’s like it was ripped out of a Fat Wreck catalog from 1996, but better. My next favorite track is “Toxic Mirror”. The track goes hardcore off the bat. Hey kids, if you wanna piss off your parent’s play this. “Snowball” is next. This track has almost a metal feel to it. “Trains’ is absolutely a badass track. We all want and need to get away sometimes.  

“Searching” is slower than some of the other tracks, but has some very deep lyrics, and rad work on guitar. This is the kind of track you need to play for the bar. And last, but not least “The Past Is Torched” is about letting go and moving on. The bass and drums are the real stars on this epic track. So what are you waiting for? Go add “Kill The Lights” to your kickass playlist. It’s out now on all major music providers.

  1. Just a Dream
  2. Moments
  3. Toxic Mirror

It’s spooky season here at Colorado Punk Rock Army. All of our admins are wearing their Halloween gear and listening to nonstop local punk rock albums. I decided I’d give Poor Me’s latest release, “Stalemate” a spin. So the big question remains is “Stalemate” a trick or treat? 

https://youtu.be/52sUqRUlNWk

The first track is “Heartsick” . It starts off slowly like a nightmarish lullaby. It quickly goes from zero to hundred in mere milliseconds. Per the band’s website this song is about moving on from an unforgettable past. Next is my absolute favorite track on the album, “Lovestruck”. This track is a tribute to Denver punk rock legend Johnny Bender. I’ll never forget where I was the night I heard Johnny passed. This beautiful tribute is so fitting for anyone who’s suffering the loss of a loved one. 

“So, Brother” (Stalemate Mix) follows and originally appeared on the band’s 2018 “Sugarcane” release. This new remix version hits harder with heavier chords and Delany’s sometimes gutter-like vocals. I have always loved the lyrics of this track.

“Let’s sacrifice it all. There wasn’t much for saving.
We’re welcoming your tired eyes – we’ll give you back your sight.
Although you’re broken, you still dissent?
So brother, why aren’t you changing? The truth is bright.
We share all the answers to fear the night.”

“Sugarcane” (Stalemate Remix – Originally appeared on “Sugarcane”) follows and this track seems much heavier than its counterpart. The gang vocals seem more polished. The drums and melody seem more powerful and yet the track still sends a great message. My third favorite track is up next and is called “Class War”. 

Honestly if I didn’t know this song was by Poor Me I would have to guess it was by Propagandhi or The Shell Corporation. This track is an absolute killer. We all know how divisive the last 5 years have been. It sure does not appear to be getting better anytime soon.

“Papa Tells Me” (Stalemate Mix – Originally appeared on “Sugarcane”) is up next and has a strong message. As sons and daughters, we are always living in our parents’ shadows. Of course, this isn’t always a bad thing, but sometimes there’s so much pressure put on the child’s shoulder even at a very young age. The first child is usually considered a “Golden Child”. The one child to change the family’s name in the social and political circles. I for one can easily identify with this track. 

Pic by Anarcho Punk

This version again destroys the former with more emphasis on a heavier sound edging the fine line between punk rock and hardcore. The track reminds me of something you would put on in a grungy rock bar before racking up the pool cues. “Mistakes Can Be Made” (Stalemate Mix – Originally appeared on “Sugarcane”) is up next. Pick up your air guitar and play along. The guitar is perfect for skatepunk fans and accompanies the vocals like magic. 

“I gave up on God and called for the nurse – a daydream had startled me.
That smile on your face may never return to me.
I couldn’t lie there and wait.
I guarantee in this life that mistakes can be made.
Guaranteed to challenge myself – but I can’t commit to a change.
Or maybe I’ll quit – I can’t commit to a change.”

“Strawman” is a brand-new track and it hits home. We fill ourselves up on so much crap to make us whole. This song is a little slower than some of the former tracks, but it can probably still manage a decent and fun circle pit. It will make you start to question life and it’s meaning.

“Fauxhawk” brings in an energetically charged political message questioning organized religion and the church’s intention. Even though it has a super deep meaning. This song is so much fun! Maybe it’s the melody or or the chorus, but this track makes me wanna dance. 

Well, we have arrived at our final track, “Perpetrators (Stalemate Mix – Originally appeared on “Sugarcane”. I have loved this song since “Sugarcane’s release. This version is so much stronger. You can feel the blood, sweat and tears pumped into the bass, the drums, guitar and vocals. You’re likely to bust a vocal chord by trying to match Delaney’s vocal styling. 

Pic by Anarcho Punk for Dying Scene

Overall is “Stalemate” a trick or treat? Well it’s absolutely amazing on all fronts. The best part is feeling the impressive tempo changes and powerhouse of energy. With tracks like, Heartsick, Lovestruck, Class War, Papa Tells Me, and Strawman one is sure to keep this record spinning.  I’m giving a ”Stalemate” my vote in CPRA’s Best Of 2021 Local Albums list”. See Poor Me with Cheap Perfume and Reno Divorce this Saturday (10/30/2021) at The Marquis Theatre for Stalemate’s album release party!

CPRA is no stranger to great folk punk. We’ve covered so many greats over the years like, Bridge City Sinners, Days N’ Daze, Gogol Bordello, The Rumjacks, Flogging Molly and Frank Turner. Today is a great day as we get to review “The Hope” by Ferocious Dog. The last time we reviewed an FD album was way back in 2018 with the “Red Album”. Oh I did mention “The Hope” is currently charting it’s way to the top 20 in the UK!

Ferocious Dog released “The Hope’ on October 15, 2021 to coincide with World Mental Health. This album is packed with amazing track after track. In fact no matter what I write I simply cannot give this album as much praise as it deserves. Let’s checkout some of my favorite tracks. The first killer track is “Haul Away Joe” an Irish traditional (sea shanty) cover. The accordion and violin set the scene for a beautiful yet haunting sea journey. As the song speeds up the bass and drums drive this track into a deep and powerful anthem. 

Pic by Marielle Groot Obbink

I am a huge Celtic folk/punk fan. The fact that I’ve never heard this song before drives me a bit mad. With the research I conducted on this track. I’d say Ferocious Dog’s version is definitely my favorite cover. Next up is “Pentrich Rising”. It references the great labor revolution of 1817. This song will have you pumping your fist in unity, “A night for revolution, a night to fight, a call to arms in England, all workers must unite”. We need this all over the world right now!

The next track, “Victims” will have you running to join the pit. Not only is it a great follow up to “Pentrich Rising”, but it’s about staying united and fighting political corruption and slave wages. “Broken Soldier” is up next and will pull at those old heart strings. How many soldiers went off to war only to return as shadows of their former selves? Most of us born after America ended the draft will never know what a soldier goes through on the battlefield. So help out our vets instead of raising your nose. 

My next favorite track is “The Hope”. Warning this song/video contains depictions of suicide or sucidial harm and may not be suitable for all listeners. On that note, this song will make you cry. We’ve all been there at some point in our lives. The intro piano starts our journey and also the welling of my tears. This song should be in the top charts across the world! 

Let’s move on to, “Exiled Life (The Chase). This song speeds the record back up. It’s energy, it’s hope and everything we need in our lives. This track is catchy and fun. As punks we all lead an exiled life. We color our hair, we listen to unpopular music, we are all different from what society expects us to be. Instead of being ashamed, embrace this exiled life we have chosen. I wish someone would’ve taken the time with me to say, “It’s ok to be different and it’s ok to be just you”. If your likes and lives make you a happy person, stay the course.

So many good tracks on this so far! “Khatyn” is up next. The song references the 1943 Khatyn massacre. Per Wikipedia, “On 22 March 1943, almost the entire population of the village was massacred by the Schutzmannschaft Battalion 118 in retaliation for an attack on German troops by Soviet partisans.” We as a people can never let the atrocities the Nazi’s committed, happen ever again. 

Pic by Graham Whitmore

Let’s roll on. “1914” is a beautiful acoustic track about a soldier leaving to fight in World War I. “Born Under Punches” comes in swinging. This track is by far my favorite on the record. It’s fast, heavy, and relatable. Sometimes you can only rely on yourself. Now it’s time for some rock N roll with, “Punk Police”. We all know who the “Punk Police” are aka “The gatekeepers of punk music and subculture”. They will judge you for everything under the sun. Again I must reiterate Punk Rock Saves Lives motto,  

Positivity

Unity

Nurture

Kindness

If you are one of these gatekeepers I think you will find out you have less “Real friends” than you think you do! “Slayed The Traveller” is next up and continues the speed of “Punk Police”. It’s energy will have you up and dancing away. Grab a good beer and turn this tune on! One of my favorite Scottish traditional songs is next and it’s the “Parting Glass”. Every time I hear this song. I cannot help, but shed a wee tear for those who’ve gone before me. Ferocious Dog’s version is now my favorite. 

Get this on vinyl now! https://thehope.ferociousdog.co.uk/products/the-hope-deluxe-digipack

It’s time for another killer sea shanty with, “The Sea Shepherd”. This song is just plain fun which salutes the fine work the folks at The Sea Shepherd are doing. Pirates sure love their gold, but I think they love the ocean more and keeping it clean and poacher free. “Will You? (feat. Hazel O’Connor)” is a beautiful duet love song. I honestly didn’t expect this song and love it! Our final track is “ Mairi’s Wedding pt.4”. This is a solid way to end the record before going into the “1914 Reprise”. 

After listening heavily to Ferocious Dogs “The Hope”.  I can say with certainty that is my favorite record of 2021. “The Hope” is a clear winner. With tracks like, Haul Away Joe, Pentrich Rising, Victims, Broken Soldier, The Hope, Exiled Life (The Chase), Khatyn, 1914, Born Under Punches, Punk Police, Slayed The Traveller, Parting Glass, and Mairi’s Wedding Pt 4 this record keeps on giving and giving. If you’re facing uncertainty, need to smile, pay your respects, or just want a bit of craic. Put on “The Hope” now!
