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.

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.

Slap Happy has always been a fun band! Until now, they’ve pretty much stayed in their own lane, as a band that was strongly influenced by Green Day. Their newest album is a slight bit of a departure and an expansion.

I LOVE the 90’s! They had the best music, the best styles, the best economy (of my lifetime), and contained my “coming of age” years. They were a decade of growth, prosperity, and peace (for the most part). The sounds of the 90’s have always felt like “home” to me.

When I started listening to the new album, “Prophylactic Shock,” by Slap Happy, I was expecting something that was more or less in line with the rest of their catalogue. What I got was a much-needed mental vacation from the 2020’s!

The first track is the perfect introduction to the album. It relies heavily on their original sound, while giving hints as to what else is coming. It feels familiar, for those who have been acquainted with the band for a long time.

After the first track, however, it feels like I’m back at the Warped Tour with Skabones, back in 1996! The second track reminded me a lot of Goldfinger; a band I had almost forgotten about, but whom I really enjoyed back in the day. Also, one of the bands that played at the aforementioned Warped Tour.

(Side note: remember when Goldfinger was on Conan O’Brien, and the drummer dropped Conan on his head, after their performance? Good times!)

While listening to this album, I felt like I was 17 again, listening to KTCL (BEFORE they got bought out by Clear Channel), smoking pot in my parents’ basement, sitting in the leather chair that was in the living room until they got new furniture (sorry, Mom).

As the album continues, Slap Happy emulates a lot of the 90’s, channeling their inner Cobain on a few tracks; getting a little dirty, a little screamy, a little angry. It encapsulates the politics of the 90’s, combined with some of the more modern sentiment about climate change and other more modern problems.

In short, this is a GREAT album for anyone who loves the 90’s as much as I do, and a gereat move forward for people who have always liked Slap Happy! I fully expect to keep this album in my regular rotation of music that I regularly listen to!
