Back in February 2019, CPRA and Just Miggy partnered up to bring All Ages Shows downtown Denver. These amazing shows are called The Kids Are Alright At Goosetown Tavern. The first Kid’s show was an absolute riot. I was blown away by all the acts. In fact one band, Tuck Knee, struck a personal chord with me. I would later pen this review here, https://coloradopunkrockarmy.com/tag/tuck-knee/

Their breakout EP, “Can’t Stand For It”, wasn’t compiled just yet, so I listened single by single for my review. I probably listened to this album at least 3-4 days a week. One thought still hits me as I listen to their latest release, “The Way Back Up”. “These kids are kids. Yet they play and write music with the heart of a band that has years in the industry”. All members are under 21, but you can’t tell by listening. 

So let’s check out their 2nd EP release. I’ll be straight up honest here. Second releases sometimes scare me. I’m always worried that I won’t like it. Not that there’s been that many secondary releases that have sucked, but there’s been enough. How is “The Way Back Up”?

The title track takes the name of the EP. River and Sam kick off the track on guitar and bass, while Harlan’s drums build the rise. As Ellis joins in on vocals the combination starts a meteoric rise. This song is fast angry and loud! 

“I’ve got an edge over people like you, 
Drag me down on the way back up. 
I’ve got an edge over people like you, 
Brainwashed youth I’ve had enough
The way back up”


Tuck Knee – “The Way Back Up” 2019

The next track, “Foundation” comes screaming in with a powerful hard edge and clocks in at 42 seconds. I think it was Lala who once said, “All my favorite songs are less than 2 minutes long”. Damn she sure was right! “Jawin” follows and continues the insane upbeat progression. Harlan’s drums are incredible while River smashes on guitar.

Is Tuck Knee a reincarnate of all my favorite hardcore bands? The next track is “Bust It”. This track encapsulates the bands belief in living a straight edge. It’s short, fun and pogo friendly. Up next is by far my favorite track on the EP, “U.S Nothing”. This track uses some of the words from the USMC, “Rifleman’s Creed” which also appeared in the movie, Full Metal Jacket

The drums set up an almost military like drum corps while Rupa’s bass line bring the emotion. Elli’s spoken word at the intro, provides the background setting and template. While I understand the “Rifleman’s Creed” was supposed to help soldiers distinguish military from civilian life. 

“Fighting a war far from won,

Tell me I got to kill Someone,

Iraq, Cuba, Vietnam these are wars never won,

Military graves I’m not alone,

Now I don’t even want to go home!”  

Tuck Knee “The U.S. Of Nothing” 2019

The words in this day and age, sound like brainwash dribble. In the US we have Proud Boys (Many whom have never served), holding guns at protests like morons manipulated by a hateful dictator. Do they chant this while preparing to intimidate others? The mere thought is scary.

“Wolfpack” is the last track on the EP. This track is written for the united angry youth. I’m almost 42 years old, but still want to join the wolf pack. In reflection, “Tuck Knee’s, “The Way Back Up” is an avalanche of hardcore punk. This release shows the band confidence is rising and they cannot and will not be stopped. I’m telling you get in on the ground floor now! You can pick up the record here, https://tuckkneeband.bandcamp.com/

Holy crap? Apparently I have been living under a rock within the last year or so. Well if you’re like me and like to dwell below the earth. Allow me to introduce Denver’s Barking Mad. This kick ass gut punching, street punk band just released, their Rampage EP on June 29, 2019. Lets dig in! 

“Equal Opportunity” opens with a good dirty bass line. Suddenly I’m thrown back into the 1980’s LA punk scene. This track encapsulates everything I love about the era. With the guttural throat style, simple but admirable riffs on guitar. This track is already stuck in my head like a rusty nail you have grown fond of. 

Next up is “Rampage”. This track is a tribute to the game, “Rampage” and maybe even to the Damned with “Smash It Up? This song kicks ass! Grab your pogo, hockey mask, or a citizen out of a window to level up! The aggression, catchy lyrics, and killer drums will have you on your own RAMPAGE! “Anti-Social” slows the progression down a bit. The song has more wicked riffs on guitar. This track was me after the last election. The nonstop media coverage made me want to leave the country. I took a break from the world for a few months.

The next track is “Divide And Conquer”. The progression comes back like a fast baseball to the face. Here’s another pogo song, but watch the pit on this track. The song clocks in at a mere 1:57. Didn’t someone say all my favorite songs are less than 2 minutes long? The drums are thumping the battle hymn. 

“All You Do” is the next song up. Not sure if this is a break up song, but we’ve all been with that person who won’t shut up. This band is full of some superior talent. Check out the drums, guitar strikes, and vocals on this track. “1984” is based off of Orwells book, 1984. This heart thumping track spills the truth. We are not safe from our “Protectors”.
