Twelve State Killing Spree
TSKS = The Damned + _ Nelson + Teen Idols
The underproduction and nasally vocals on this album make this sound like a recording my band I had in high school made—and that is not flattering. However, the early 90s (not over-) melodic tunes contrast the more-malevolent-than-your-typical-snotty/poppy-punk-band lyrics quite well to make this album interesting enough not to bore the fuck out of you. If I hadn’t seen these guys at Todd’s I would think they were 18 years old—max. I would have loved Twelve State Killing Spree if I had heard them in ninth grade.
