It’s no secret that we love People Corrupting People here at CPRA. They did our theme song for our podcast and our TV show. You watch the show and listen to the podcasts here, https://coloradopunkrockarmy.com/. We’ve reviewed their albums so many times I’ve lost track, but if you want to read more go here.

With the Covid 19 pandemic sweeping the world, we all need a break from the sad headlines on Facebook and the news. So leave it to People Corrupting People aka PCP to release their brand new record. “Lounge Lizard” on April 20, 2020. So light up a bowl and and read along with Grandpa Skabones kids. 

PCP is known for their antics, in fact as I write this they are holding a 4/20 Smoke A Thon right here, https://www.facebook.com/pcpsux/videos/2667722366673414/. If you enjoy passing around a dildo be sure to check it out. So let’s dig into “Lounge Lizard”. This album is 100% pure instrumental, which to be honest I was caught off guard at first. There’s something very different and very lovable that I shall get into. 

The first track, “Amazon Primus” has some heavy  Primus-like bass lines by Eddie Lindo. It resembles early Alice In Chains, but less heroiny. I’ll prob go to hell for saying that haha. The next track is “Casio No He Didn’t”, and for whatever reason it reminds me of Gene from Bob’s Burgers. But this track will be a hit for Gene. It has a great groove and perfected horns. Is PCP staking a claim into the 80’s new wave era?

“Dewey Got Diddles” follows up and comes in with a heavy ska core rock edge. This track is more on the metal side, with some great skate punk sound. Jen’s viola play is remarkable. Mike brings the scifi in with work on the theremin. Dyl goes nuts on the drum kit. This is by far a favorite favorite track right here.

 My next favorite song is up next, “Jim Jones Slumber Party”. I’m not gonna go into detail about Jim Jones, but check it out here, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Jones. This track is beautifully written and delicious to the eardrums. This song needs to be on a soundtrack. For a band that plays a ton of antics, they are sure fucking talented. Expect this to be on a future CPRA Podcast episode!

“Panflute Sexual” is next up and Jethro Tull is about to get a run for his money, This track is super heavy on bass, fast and gives the pan flute a brand new hardcore edge. Holy shit the panflute is hardcore now! The next song is “Pterodactyl Cunt Punt”. This track reminds of early Suicidal Tendencies, with aggressive Anthrax edge. This was totally unexpected. Rich brings the ska core to the limits.

“Quarantina Wine Mixer” is next and the slowest track on the list. It’s a hot island track to help melt your cold heart, or does it warm up your cold heart? I don’t know if you caught my Southpark reference there? Dyl, Jen and Rick kill it on “Sax And Violins”. I hear a little Jewish folk in this track, but I could definitely be wrong. However it would not surprise me. Fans of “Arrested Development” will love the next track, “There’s Always Money In The Banana Stand”. 

I’m not positive that’s a stand up bass at the intro, but it thumps deep and is a possibility. This track is grove worthy and fun. “Whatever You Say, Dr Dre” is up next. This track is mello and on the reggae ska side. Of course the obvious salute to the man himself Dr Dre. I personally love the horns on this song. The next track, “What’s Chaplin, Bro” is mixed with Chaplins’s famous speech from the “Great Dictator”. I sat beside myself embedded in the tones and listened sharply to Chaplin’s words. It will definitely make you think.

“Yeasty Boys” follows up with some amazing work on bass and guitar. “Lost In The Sauce” is next with a Primus nod, but funky like George Clinton, and a little latin spice in there. Now I’m no Disco Doug, but shit this track is fun! Get your skankin shoes on and that “Stayin Alive” outfit on! The final track is “Trapped In The Sap” while PCP may not be known for metal. This track may change things. Holy shit is it good!

Overall I’d say “Lounge Lizard’ is a magnificent instrumental album. PCP is mainly known as a ska band; however this album has everything I was never expecting. The deep bass, metal licks, cool island sounds, scifi, and some insane drums. Seriously don’t sleep on “Lounge Lizard” by People Corrupting People”. Get it here, www.pcpsux.com.

Favorite Tracks: Give Up The Ghost, Bigfoot Beach, and Halloween

Sounds Like: People Corrupting People, Less Than Jake, Five Iron Frenzy, Madaline, Pietasters, and Reel Big Fish


There are 2 things in this world that mean everything to me. One of them is ska! My uncle introduced me to Madness at a young age. I’ve been hooked since. The other thing being Halloween. So what happens when ska and goth combine forces? Skath! Truth be told there’s not really many ska bands out there who can get dark, I mean gothic dark. So allow me to introduce Berkley, CA’s, Grave Danger! The 2nd EP release, ‘Tomb It May Concern’ dropped early this morning!

The EP kicks off with “Give Up The Ghost”. This track is dark with the creepy, “Munster’s” like organ, but so lovable. The horns and anthem like chorus are perfectly timed! Erbach is simply killing it on drums. It’s a love song. 

“Well I know I can make you see

How much happier you could be

We could chat with out necromancy

You gotta give up the ghost and get with me!”

The next track is “Bigfoot Beach”. Ok so what if all of our favorite monsters had a kick ass beach party? This ska/surf tune is nothing, but 100% fun! Dave’s work on guitar is admirable. Ok goth’s let’s get dancing under the moonlight and go to sasquatch’s BBQ! “Cemeterrarium” here’s another kick ass song to dance to! I can totally see the Peanuts gang dancing to this, haha! Chris’s vocals are amazing as this song is more on the ska punk side. 

“Halloween”, a Misfits cover is the next track. Although the Misfits version is classic. One issue I’ve always held with their version is Danzig’s annunciation. I thought it was “Dead Vets hanging from poles”, until the Misfits released the 1995 Collection with lyrics. The cover is happy, filled with energy, and you can clearly understand the lyrics! Plus the horns add a little extra evil! 

The final track is “Undead End Job”. Erbach kills it on yes the Theremin! Now there are not many bands that use a Theremin, of course Denver’s People Corrupting People do. We are sitting in our office chairs as the undead, waiting till the buzzer lets us rejoin the living. The guitar riffs are nuts. The pit may be a little nasty on this track. 

Let’s wrap this review up. Occasionally an album sneaks in and we HAVE to review it. Obviously since we are not paid, it’s purely a voluntary choice, speaking of that please consider a donation or a merch purchase! Grave Danger’s, ‘Tomb It May Concern’ is not only a great fit for Halloween, but an EP you should be listening to year round. The horns, pick it up riffs, incredible drums will make you buy all of their tracks! Pick it up NOW, https://gravedangerskath.bandcamp.com/

Denver’s PCP has been some Busy Beaver so far in 2019. They released their infamous Christmas album, “White Elephant” back in January. You can read that review and other Animal Farm Chronicles here, https://coloradopunkrockarmy.com/tag/people-corrupting-people/. The Orwellian based band continues to bring truth and justice to the masses. Kids pop in some PCP Tarts. It’s time to dig into, “Busy Beaver”.


So before I go all long and drawn out. Let me point out that, “Busy Beaver” is FREE. I know you were ready to fork out thousands of dollars for some quality ska punk. So save those dollars for the bar or best of all PCP merch. The EP kicks off with “Two Minutes Hate”. In a way I feel like every person can relate to this. You pick up your phone to check out Facebook and can quickly get your “Two Minutes Hate”. It may be some religious zealot friend, some orange haired ogre president, or even a relative. You don’t need that negativity in your life.

“Building 7” is the next track up. This song reminded me of a documentary I watched recently regarding the Emperor Constantine. The documentary offered proof that Constantine was never a Christian, and that he stayed true to his pagan roots. He even built monuments to display his pagan beliefs. One was a statute of the Roman Sun God, Apollo. Constantine was said to have hid bits of the True Cross inside this statue. He merely adopted Christianity to preserve the Roman Empire.

So in part, Constantine played a massive prank on all believers of Christianity. This is what the United States has done to all Americans since 9/11. While claiming our “Freedom” is being protected, it’s actually being whittled away. Our Dear Leader spouts non-stop hateful rhetoric, while we stand by and listen. What is the wizard doing behind the curtain?

OK sorry for my rant, but I guess I needed to get that out. Let’s move on to the next song. “Bacteri-Yum”. This track is so damn catchy. I constantly find myself humming along. For fans of ska core this is your song. This track has some amazing bass and guitar, including the lovely Jen on violin. Personally they really should consider getting this song accompanied by a full orchestra.

A love song featuring the X Men? “Ex Man” is just that. Not only is this song hilarious, it kicks serious ass! Will the X-Men, help out our Ex Man? “Brad Mosh Pitt” is the next track. You will be running for the pit as you slam each other as PCP lists of movies by Brad Pitt. Wait what? I really dig this tune.

So back in the 80s there were 2 superstars Chevy Chase and Paul Simon. Paul Simon wrote and recorded, “You Can Call Me Al”. This mega popular song ended up on his Graceland album. I am no means a Paul Simon fan, but I love “You Can Call Me Al”. I think my love for the song mainly comes from the video. Chevy and Paul go rounds in the hilarious video. PCP needs to remake this video now!

PCP’s cover is excellent. Everything is harder, heavier even the trombone. The drums really stuck out as well. Due to some local controversy I am skipping the next song. CPRA believes in the Denver Scene, and we will stay that way. On, “Washington”, the ska core comes back with furious animosity.  Nate’s rap is pretty bad ass, while a slow island like jam plays along.

“Cum All Ye Faithful”, follows with a raunchy blast towards religion. As, Nick Cormier sings you can feel him preaching to the choir. This is by far my absolute favorite track on the album. A big shout out to Mike Lebofsky as his theremin skills add a super creepy edge. The last and nerdiest track is up next with Goku Vs. Superman. Dyl’s drumming and Nate’s shredding give this song the perfect combination.

It’s time to call this one a wrap. People Corrupting People’s, “Busy Beaver” is another excellent addition to the Animal Farm Chronicles. PCP may not be concerned about getting rich in the music industry. They do pour their heart and souls into making some damn good music.

And did I mention it’s FREE?
