Album Notes
Pen15 - Lettuce, Turnip And Pea - 2004 - Self-Produced
Pen15 brings to mind simplistic rock and roll at its finest. Based out of southwestern, Ohio, USA this trio plays an organic style of country fueled punk
rock. "Lettuce, Turnip And Pea" is not overproduced to achieve their cagey solid sound; the band achieves this on their own with outrageously talented guitar work,
subdued bass lines and simple, yet very effective, drum beats. With each and every track, Pen15 solidifies their place in the growing trend of garage rock outfits,
that we're all familiar with. However, Pen15 brings something different to the table, not necessarily a new paradigm of music, but more along a mix of styles that
isn't found in the garage-punk laced rock that is in circulation these days. While the album didn't contain any liner notes or even a lyric sheet, from what I have
heard, lyrically Pen15 is extremely personal on most songs. The band offers intimate looks into their softer side with tracks like "Lament," while crushing you down with
the fury of "Shallow". All in all, Pen15 is an intense band that offers a strikingly straight jab of stripped down rock and roll that will delight any fan of good music.


“Lettuce, Turnip, and Pea”
Hey, these guys are from Zanesville, Ohio. I went there once to chase down a whore of a girlfriend who ran away with the carnival. Small world. I am actually really digging most of this. It has a definite early 90’s garage band sound, kind of like a missing link between “alternative” and punk. Great songs like “Statistic,” “Shallow,” “Bar Bend Blues,” and “G.O.D.” come down on you like falling rocks...
Still, there is definitely way more good songs than not-so-good ones... enough to suggest living in Zanesville might not be that bad. Trim some of the gristle from this, and you’d have a prime cut of Grade A meat.

“Some of the Finer Points of Rock and Roll”
PEN15 produces high pitched, tinnitus-inducing simple rock taking a cue from the famous songwriting style of the early 90's, slow verses and fast choruses, something that rarely graces the ears of the South-eastern Ohio music scene. With desperate lyrics, snotty vocals, distorted guitar, toned up bass lines, and fast drumming, they play the kind of music that makes kids jump onto their bed and play air guitar.

You are treated to some of the Finer Points of Rock and Roll: very catchy (a trait most of today's DIY bands have seem to forgotten about),pure, unorganized insanity meant to drive the elderly mad by the band's main entity, singer/songwriter/guitarist Dustin Rouan. Since giving
birth to the band in '96, Rouan has stuck to what he loves despite popular music trends and with eight years of growth, an album and many line up changes later and the trio has never sounded better. Not to young to dream it and not to old to forget it, these boys are living it.
