In an age where EDM and shitty pop dominates the airwaves. You need some authentic and pure Denver punk to get through your day. Over Time hung up their Blades Of Steel to record a new EP for our ear holes. Speaking of Blades Of Steel I’m hoping they will release more of the shirts below. Mine is getting small or I’m getting fat. Anyhow you didn’t come to read about weight loss you came to read about, “Decades”. 

The record intros in with, “Decades: What A Nightmare”. As the heavy kick drum starts out. You can feel the weight of this song, as it launches into a full on audio assault. This track is about watching your friends change and growing older. This track hit me on a personal level. I’ve watched a few of my so called, “Best Friends”, grow up and move on, to never hear from them again. Yet I’ve made new friends since and my relationships with them are now everlasting.

And we’re past the point 

Where this life is scary

I’ve buried more friends than I’ve seen get married

Man, it’s sad to say

But I hope they’re all in a better place”

“Cant Stay The Same” is up next. Now I’m not sure if this is a coincidence or not but it seems there are some nods to the Boss aka Bruce Springsteen on this track. With references to the tracks, “Born To Run” and “I’m On Fire”. This track comes to life with energy, with strong chord strikes, head nodding drum beats, and great lyrical content. This tune will get stuck in your head from the get go. As the record progresses I  love it more and more. Here’s my own nod to the boss below. 

“Art Of The Steal” come up next. It reminds somewhat of an older H2O song. This one is politically charged and motivated by anger. If you’re even slightly afraid of a nasty pit, better get out on this one. If not join the fun! NYC Hardcore fans you will love this track! 

“Energy” follows with more speed and some insane drums. This track is more on the melodic skate punk side. The writer is reminiscing about time with a friend while listening to Op Ivy’s, “Energy”.  I felt I really couldn’t find the words when trying to describe this song. Nor felt I could give it the justice it deserves. Every time I tried to type a tear would well up. So I reached out for comment. 

Per Ben Kellogg, “So, “Energy” was written about a friend of mine, my best friend actually that left us in 2015. It touches on the years that we first met and our connection over a taped copy of “Energy” by Op Ivy and the times we spent learning all the songs on the record and singing them at the top of our lungs whenever we got the chance. Fox, the person in question, always had a bit of mystery surrounding him and constantly left me worrying, so the song kind of touches on that in the sense that I always had the utmost confidence that he would survive his demons, but was always a bit shaken to the core by some of our conversations. 

The first line, “I got that sinking feeling, the moment you flew south, you were the one that I told everyone about” kind of sums up the whole theme of the song, as I was always so proud and in constant awe of his friendship, but when he moved away in 2013 I just had a gut feeling that something bad was going to eventually happen.”

The next song is, “Twilight Sentinel”, fitting with the theme of the album and the nightmare of growing older. The acoustic intro starts out on a somber note, before building into an electrical climax. The bass line although not prominent adds that underlying emotion, while Kellog’s vocals provide the story. This vocals and style are similar to Lenny from Darkbuster. The big difference maker being, this track has an extreme amount of depth both instrumental and lyrically. 

“Walls”, loses the acoustic while returning to a faster heart pounding sound. This one is pure driven hardcore. Have you ever obsessed about something you missed or felt you needed? You might be over it, yet still think of it from time to time. Yet still feel like there is a political undertone.  

“Drag The Lake” is the last track on the EP. Personally I’m not ready for it to end. This track is nothing but heavy and I love it. One part I love about Over Time is you never really know which way a track will go. It may go the pop punk route, before quickly reverting to a hardcore skate punk sound. In my head I see fists pumping and kids circling the pit to this track. There’s a sense of unity somewhere in there. 

I reached out to the band for comment as I really wanted to know more about what drove this record into production. Per Ira Dechter, “The album has a theme of growth and putting the past behind you. Learning from our mistakes and becoming a better person. While still touching on the current state of our country with the songs like “Walls” and “Art of the Steal” relative to being a better person and treating everyone as equals no matter where they’re from or what their background is.”

This EP has come to an end and so must this review. Over Time’s, “Decades”, has been composed with anger, love, and unbridled talent. The brillaint combination of NYC Hardcore, melodic skate punk, and a dash of pop punk, makes this little EP, one giant record. Sure there may be more like it out there, but none made by Over Time.

Keeping 90s Skatepunk Alive, Trashed Ambulance Releases, “Shorthanded”

Release Date: June 7, 2019                                                   

Format: Digital, cassette (limited to 100 copies, order now!!)

Label: Thousand Island Records

Location: Red Deer, Alberta, Canada

Current Lineup: (Per Facebook)

  • Jawsh
  • RB
  • Shark

Favorite Tracks: Open Road, Buy In, Round 3

Sounds Like: 90s Skate Punk, NoFX


Growing up, there was the holy trinity of punk rock labels. It was Epitaph, Hellcat, & Fat Records. This band takes me back to listening to the Fat Records for Fat People compilations. Obviously influenced by NoFX, a band that is apparently easy to hate on by many punks now, but fuck that hate stuff. I never understood how hating things & bands made you a more interesting person. They are a band still influencing great music, like Trashed Ambulance.

The band’s new EP, Shorthanded, isn’t set on reinventing music here, but they take a sound & do it well. Vocals & guitar that serve the sound very well. Excellent melodies that will stick in your head. Driving drums that are vital to giving the record the energy needed to make the band work. What stands out the most though, is the bass. I love bass solos, walking the bass instead of simply playing the notes. Rad bass lines throughout the EP.

Open Road is an excellent opening track for their new EP. it’s everything I mentioned above, & everything you need to know about how you’ll enjoy this record. Fun guitar and bass solos break up the end of Trash Queens, helping the track stand out. Buy In is a great self-deprecating track, “I’m never gonna win, so I might as well buy in.” Great hook. The standout lyric to me though, is from Round 3, the closing track from the band. “Don’t find solace by being a dick.” Great lyric, great message, fantastic song. Be good to each other, be good to this band. Check them out.

Favorite Tracks: Revolution Part II, Survive, Suicide Mission, Fuck God and Fuck Reality, Fuck No, Manhole To Hell, Drink And Stink, Jake,

Sounds Like: Black Flag, Skudfux, Op Ivy, and Abolitionist


Why start this article off with a clip of High Fidelity? How is Jerkswitch’s “BUFO” even related to “High Fidelity? Let me tell you why. This 16 track debut album is FULL of non-stop fantasic fucking music. Personally when I heard the Skudfux was no more. I was a bit sad as I love them. Sometimes when something ends, it’s because something bigger and better is coming.  Skudfux is now Jerkswitch!

This compilation album of old and new songs is a whopper at 16 awesome tracks. Let’s dig in further.  “Revolution Part II” kicks off the record. You can listen to part one here. From the start you can feel a more polished sound. This is probably one of my top 5 intros of all time. The hunger, the passion, this is the ultimate set up.

Now my second favorite is actually the second track, “Survive” from the “FERN” EP. This is some hardcore ska punk. The lead singer has an almost Jello like tone. It’s just shy of being a little to metal, as the ska punk element is beautifully retained. The pit will be dangerous on this track. “Suicide Mission” is up next. It starts out with a heavy bass line before exploding into nonstop pogo madness.  

“Fuck God And Fuck Reality” is up next. I absolutely love this track. From the opening guitar strum and drums straight into the heart pumping power chords. How long we will sit by and allow the church and/or Republican Party to dictate moral policy to us? The Catholic Church has died in popularity here in the states. A new and evil Republican church took over. Check out the lyrics below!

“I never was one to believe,

What I could not see,  

All them catholic fairytales,

Keep em away from me,

And I don’t like what I see,

They don’t like what I am,

I’ll stand proud and say,

Fuck God and fuck reality”

These lyrics are so simple, yet so spot on to this writer. The swath of southern states passing women’s reproductive rights restrictions proves to us that the church is more concerned about social control and less about society as a whole. Let’s move onto the next song, “Better Days”. This song is providing hope for the hopeless with awesome lyrics and sweet guitar riffs. “AlertA” is next with an instrumental tune.

“Fuck No” is another song from the FERN Ep. This track cracks me up every time I listen. How many times a day do you say Fuck No? This is yet another great song. The anthems and whoas are perfectly timed. It is very catchy. “O Negative” comes up next with more of ska kickass Squirrel Nut Zippers sound, yet gets harder with the progression. This band is insanely talented.  

Drown” starts out slow and serious note. I hear maybe some grunge influences, maybe even a bit of some surf punk. “Drink And Stink” comes roaring in with a fast skate punk sound. Advance warning before joining the pit on this track, it’s gonna be rough. I love this song! “Jake” another track from FERN is next up. Jerkswitch goes back to its roots with a great skapunk sound.

“Manhole To Hell”, is another energetic song along the lines of skatepunk. This is for anybody who has ever been oppressed by another.  This song is full of anger, passion, and some amazing drum work. This song has to kill the lead singer’s voice. “All By Myself” slows down upon intro and build into circle pit loving madness. With the steely sound, guitar solos, this reminds me a lot of Faith No More.

This song is KILLER!

Jerkswitch goes acoustic next with, “I’m So Sorry”. The composition of this track is beautiful. I think that’s a cello in the background. Wait this is punk. There are no cellos in punk. I kid of course. Again full blown talent and rightly displayed on this track. “About A Punk” speeds the pace back up with some skapunk. I adore this track. Not only is it skankable, the lyrical content is fucking amazing.

Anyone who has ever been in local band, worked with locals, can relate to this track. We all ask or friends and coworkers to come to our shows and they don’t. We ask them to share our albums, facebook posts and they don’t. It’s up to us as bands, promoters, and fans to help support the punk scene in any way we can. This track has serious potential for doing very well.

Here we are at the last track, “Richmond Hill” this is beautiful outro instrumental track. I have to admit I’m not a huge fan of anything instrumental. In this particular album though the instrumentals blend like threads of a book binding. So there we have it. Jerkswitch’s debut album, “BUFO” is the definition of a perfect album. This record will appeal to not only fans of punk, but other genres as well. I personally cannot wait for more music from Jerkswitch!

The skate punk reviews seem to keep rolling in here at CPRA, and we are digging it. In the last few weeks we’ve reviewed, Riverside Odds, and The Barren Marys (Given more on the street punk side). I’d like to take a minute to disagree with whomever wrote the Wikipedia for Skate punk. Per the author skate punk was popularized in the mainstream by The Offspring’s 1994 album, “Smash”.

Personally I’ve never equated The Offspring with skate punk at all. That is really just my opinion of course. Skate punk for me started before the Offspring with bands like Suicidal Tendencies, and Agent Orange. Of course there are many arguments to be had here. Corporate Citizens new album, “A Brief Moment Of Sanity” continues the amazing tradition of California skate punk.

Let’s take a deeper look into the album. A ripper kicks off the album with, “Batten Down The Hatches”. This one is strong on an old school heavy bass line. The track gets your head nodding and has a sweet catchy chorus to sing along with. Next up is a favorite of mine, “95 Sound”. We all look back in time and think we had it better than.

“Wasting all of our todays just looking back at then.
And twenty years from now we will look back at when?
I won’t be held hostage by the distant past,
seconds ticking down so fast.
I will strive to live past the year 1995.”

We all have those awesome memories. Where were you the first time you heard “Institutionalized”? I agree with the band 1995 kicked ass, but don’t live in 1995. Punk isn’t dead and isn’t going anywhere. So hop that pogo right into the nearest pit. I absolutely love this fucking song! I am hoping we get a video for it. It is guaranteed to get stuck in your head.

The next track is, “Next Big Thing”. Here at CPRA I have to use the latest smartphones to make sure I can access our social media stuff. That’s mainly because we want to constantly be available to our bands and our fans. Before CPRA I didn’t care if I owned the latest anything. Wanting the latest of anything really just makes you a slave to mass consumerism. You can’t take that $75,000 car to the grave with you.

“I never wanted it, I never needed it
I’m not looking for the next big thing
Just fine where i’m at
And you can judge me, make me feel small
But your opinion means nothing at all
I just don’t care”

This song is another personal favorite. It’s relate-able and makes you angry to think how much money is wasted. From the intro and straight into the chorus this song kicks so much ass. I’m seeing circle pits in my mind as Meder’s vocals power through the wicked guitar riffs and drum work.

“Bold-Faced Lies” is next up and keeps up the non-stop energetic power force. This is yet another killer song. The bass and guitar hooks really build a genuine Cro Mags like expulsion. “Trust Fails”, follows a bit of a slower pace and feels more on the melodic side. This one for all of those failed relationships that should’ve been put out immediately. We’ve all been there and it sucks!

“Fatal Trap” comes rolling in with an increase in anger and speed. So far I love the simplicity in all of these songs. They speak to all of us in some way or another. This song is another for the pit. I love the drums as they are fast and heavy. “Got No Time”, is yet another one of my favorite songs on the record.

“How did we get in this predicament
We wonder where the good times went
Everyday is a battle but no one wins
We’ll repeat this cause it never ends
Can’t seem to find middle ground
This carousel of hate goes round and round”

Yet another fantastic song for the pit. Are you starting to see a pattern here? This track fucking rules. Have you ever just stopped arguing and walked away? Do any of us have the time or the energy to spend arguing constantly with someone? This one has been stuck on repeat for 2 days! I love the guitar riffs.

“Just Walk Away”, come sliding in next. This track is heavy on the anger. It’s reminiscent of Gorilla Biscuits or H2O. I don’t really like to play the “Sounds Like Game”, but sometimes it’s hard to convey a similar sound without dropping a band name. “The Good One” closes out this phenomenal album. This track is as Admin A once said is pure, “Break Up Punk”. It relates to everyone with it catchy vocals, yet powerful bass and guitar.

I need to wrap up this review. Corporate Citizens album “A Brief Moment Of Sanity” is an incredible giant surprise to this reviewer. The band chants and harmonizes through this album with a fluidity only prone to hardcore punk.

Favorite Tracks: Red Dawn, Leningrad Beach, My Mommie Is A Commie, UBV76, and Russian Bear

Sounds Like: Ramones, Lillingtons, Sunset Silhouette, and No Use For A Name


The Russians are coming Marty! The Black Russians that is with their latest release, “Death By Communism”. This Soviet Era Pop Punk band is heavily influenced by the Ramones. Truth be told I am in love with this record. From the wicked 80s style guitar solos, kick ass drums, to the thumping bass lines. The vocals are very similar to the Queers, yet there’s still a nod to Johnny Ramone in there.

My personal favorite track is Leningrad Beach. It may be an ode to The Ramones – “Rockaway Beach”, but the Black Russians present this song in a pure skate punk format. This is perfect melodic hardcore at its best. I want to grab my board and hit the streets just listening to this song.


“My Mommie is a commie and she’s running from the CIA”

Black Russians – “My Mommie Is A Commie”

My second favorite track is, “Mommie Is A Commie”. Talk about a song that is super catchy. The guitar hooks are wicked. I am sure hoping this gets a vinyl release at this point even in the review! To be perfectly honest all of these tracks are killer! Time for me stop ranting. Black Russians new, “Death By Communism” should immediately join your download collection. Don’t be surprised later when CPRA says, “We Told Ya So”.

So you’re sitting at school or work. Watching that stupid clock slowly countdown till you can hit your favorite show on Saturday. Life seems to come to a full and complete stop. Your boss is on your ass to make deadlines. Then out of nowhere one of your favorite bands drop an album a few days early. It’s like getting hit by a bolt of lightning. Almost as if you drank 20 Monsters and can now run, really, really fast.


Thus, my dilemma. I’m sitting here at work, making the man richer by the minute. I’d much rather somewhere, anywhere else. Out of nowhere Denver’s Trick Punch announces their new album. “The Latest” has dropped. Keep in mind their scheduled release is 4/27/2019 at Streets of Denver for the release party. So to serve my need for instant gratification I hit the download as soon as I saw the release.

If Trick Punch are new to you be sure to check out their last release, “Third Bridge”. Now if you have listened to “Third Bridge”, you’re gonna love, “The Latest”. The album kicks off with “Brandy”. They couldn’t have picked a better song to start with. Super deep bass lines, guttural like vocals, and even a little melodic hardcore thrown in. This my friends defines CPRA’s definition of “Break Up Punk”.
“Don’t Look Down” is next up. This track continues the amazing fast and hardcore pace. The lyrics are heartfelt and sung with great passion comparable to Jason Cruz of Strung Out. It may seem like this song may be in reference to suicide. For this writer it’s about going head first into something with all your energy, heart and soul with zero fucks given.

“The Latest”, comes in with a couple of sweet guitar strikes. The tributes to the movie “Office Space” are hilarious. This one is for all of us feeling like we are wasting our time. Those of us sitting like robots in the assembly line. “No Pegs”, comes up next with a master flow. This is my personal favorite song on the album.
I reached out to Billie Riot for more information. “No pegs is all about the hundreds of crazy nights spent at Denver skate park and all the shady or crazy stuff that went down. There is one gap called “no pegs” that anyone who skates knows. It’s also an anti bmxer song just for some fun shit talking, because they always sit right at the landing of the gap.

So when I would land my trick I would power slide into them like a bowling ball until, they got the fuck out of the way. The hot dog cart lady would sell single cigs if you were in the know and I suspected she sold more than just that.” I’m not going to ruin this kick ass song with my personal thoughts, because it deserves more than that! This song needs a great video for it, wink!
“Snakes”, follows “No Pegs”. That heavy skate punk sound returns. The track is just fun as hell and it’s about fireworks! It’s catchy as hell! “Secret Of The Pros” is up next and is probably my second favorite song. Listen to Trick Punch on this one and learn the secrets of the pros! This track has some wicked drums and some very impressive guitar riffs.

The legendary bassist from Bottom Bracket behind a Snake pinata.

“Gyf”, is pure and furious. I suggest you add this to your “Break Shit” playlist. Throw this one on it right now! This one will have all those crazy drunk guys running straight for the pit. “One Track” is up next and likely the slowest track on the album. It has a darker, more emotional side. This one is heavy on bass and guitar shreds. It’s heartbreaking, yet relate-able on many levels.

57430259_2849067308467097_772249598155554816_o
“Bowser”, this track is just some plain fuckery from the band. Get your pogo shit on with this tune. “Luci” closes out this fucking rad record. Another prime example of excellent “Break Up Punk”. I love the thumping western sound. I should probably stop fan boying all over this album.

56842805_2819008824806279_7256901984567951360_n
Trick Punch’s, “The Latest” is likely getting my vote for best local LP release. The amount of skate punk, old school rock, and even a hint of rockabilly will leave you coming back for another listen. This is the perfect album to introduce to those young skate punks in your life. Be sure to hit their release party show Saturday night at Streets of Denver with Bottom Bracket/Chemical X/Dryer Fire!
