"the best Seattle has to offer"
If you're like me and you're not familiar with the Seattle music scene, then you may want to give PUNKS AND PINTS a listen or two. This comp contains 22 tracks of the best Seattle has to offer. While it's safe to say I didn't like every band on this comp, I did like most of them. Listening to this made me aware of some new bands that I want to look into now. That list includes Fifty Fifty, No Means Yes, Instant Winner, Truce, Sledgeback, and Gutbomb.

"a lot of talent"
22 bands I never heard of, but some are good unpolished gems. Fifty Fifty have a slight early Queers thing going and the Spit-Licks sound Clash-ish on "Strummin' Joe," which of course makes sense. There's also a surprising number of sleazy punk n' roll and punk-metal bands, though maybe not surprising considering the grunge influence. Sound quality fluctuates, but overall, it's a decent local comp that showcases a lot of local talent. My only disappointment it that with the title being "Punks & Pints," I was hoping for more street punk.


Based off of the "Trailer Trash" Tuesday night punk rock performances at Seattle's Central comes the Punks & Pints comp. 22 tracks from various Seattle area punk rockers in all of their cheap beer laden glory. This CD has tracks from the likes of Potty Mouth Society, Firecrotch, Subjekt 2 Change and Jaded52. I don't personally know any of these bands, but I am led to believe that, yes, all of the good names have already been taken. Band names regardless the CD still contains some good old fashioned punk rock. Although Seattle is more known for grunge Jimmy Hendrix and Heart than punk rock. I would have to say that they are the punk rock capitol of the Pacific Northwest. Personal favorites on this CD include the tracks by Fifty/Fifty, Sledgeback (who have vocals kinda like the Bosstones or maybe Leatherface), Gutbomb and a powerful track from Last 1 Out. Overall the CD cover a wide variety of punk rock styles and I recommend it for any of you Washingtonians out there that want to support your local punk rock bands.

Alaska Ink

‘Punks and Pints,’ a 22 song compilation from some of Seattle’s best punk bands, or at least the best of Trailer Trash Tuesdays at the Central? Since I live in Alaska I’m guessing the Central is a venue in Seattle. And after a little research I can confirm it. The Central is a club that features 2 dollar PBR’s and the best in Seattle’s local Punk, Hardcore, Psychobilly, Thrash and Ska bands. With a city that size I’m sure there are a lot of bands to pick from and on this comp you have 22 chances to find a band from Seattle you’ll like. Most of the bands on this comp sound a bit similar, like they may have all shared the same guitar or recorded at the same studio. With 22 bands to totally pick apart you’re sure to find something you can appreciate. For me I found bands like GutBomb, Last1Out, InstantWinner and The BlackTop Demons really separated themselves from the rest of the pack of bombastic simpletons. Still at least, all the bands on this comp are serious about their music and have high quality recordings and fully loaded websites. I know this Punks and Pints is just a portion of what the pacific North West has to offer.

"one of the most solid compilations I’ve heard in the last few years"
Since the advent of grunge, one doesn’t hear about anything important from the Pacific Northwest, especially in the punk side of things (with Virus Nine being probably the only band I can immediately come up with). However, Sliver is trying their best to show that the scene isn’t completely dead, with their 22 shot barrage of acts from the area. Starting off with the Monster Magnet meets Corrosion of Conformity and Bosstones ska/hasher-rock of The Hell Yeahs, Sliver starts out strong. Bringing out a NoFX meets 7 Seconds/Descendents sound, Fifty Fifty’s “Golden Ears” is a track that is benefited from a solid mastering as well as break-neck pace and impressive arrangements. Even what an individual has thought previously about pop-punk music is turned on its head by the heavily Weezer-influenced Instant Winner, mixing the snotty vocals of a Billy Talennt with a beyond-talented drum line and bouncy tone. Early on in the disc is a point so high that listeners will confuse it with one of the Cascade mountains – the multiple-harmonies of Truce, in their track “Blind By Red”. I almost feel bad with this review, as each of the cuts on Punks and Pints are so far beyond the normal fare I receive – I can’t give each band the proper time they deserve. Sledgeback mixes the gritty vocals of Rise Against with intricate guitar licks and Freeman-esque bass lines in their emo-one-minute, punk-the-next track “Pants Off”. And you guessed it as well – the second after I laud the consistency of this disc, Punks & Pints lets off two turds: The Spit-Licks’ “Strummin’ Joe” comes off as a weak retread of the Ramones and Agent 86’s “Rally ‘round the Flag” never gets started. Autonomadic’s “Pigtails” sputters a little at the beginning but mixes the fury of punk with the alternative –rock of the Spin Doctors and Nirvana to make an incredibly infectious track. White Knuckle Ride’s “Raise Some Hell” fits perfectly between oi and psychobilly, and aside from a stutter-step here and there, Punks & Pints is one of the most solid compilations I’ve heard in the last few years. In fact, the only possible comparison I can make for the quality of this disc would be the always-excellent Hussieskunk discs, and this album is done without the help of already-established bands. In fact, I can honestly say that before I threw on this disc, I had absolutely no idea who any of these bands were. I want to know more now!
Top tracks: Autonomadic’s Pigtails, Sledgeback’s Pants Off

"It will leave you shouting for more!"
A compilation along the same lines as the Seattle's Best Rock CD with The
Central connection switching to punk bands, but in my opinion it has a lot
more diverse styles. There are 22 bands in all, and it will leave you
shouting for more! If I had a real punk radio show (not the lame Internet
radio show which I do have), I would hit play one night and drink beer in
the studio for an hour while the album played straight through. As for
styles, this disc covers almost the entire spectrum: hillbilly punk,
metallic punk, pop punk, and good old punk rock. My favorites were by
Fifty Fifty, White Knuckle Ride, The Rotten Eggs, Black Top Demon, and

Great comp
When doing a review on a compilation it is hard to not
review it on things other than the music, since the
flow of different genres can hurt a truly good song.
That wasn't the case here, geography was what I had to
fight. I expected the world from all these bands since
they're from Seattle home to greats like Nirvana and
Pearl Jam. While it is safe to say I didn't hear the
next "Smells Like Teen Spirit" or the next "Jeremy"
what I did hear were a number of bands making a very
good attempt at making decent music. The absolute high
point for me even upon repeated listens was The Hell
Yeahs song Stronger Than God, the song did somthing
that hasn't really been done since the days of X ...
add an organ to a straight ahead punk song. While this
album does slip occasionally due to the occasionally
venture into the "screamo" genre even that is done
more originally and artistically than half the bands
that are doing the same thing on major labels today.
The Blacktop Demon Anthem by Black Top Demon is also
one the songs on this comp. That jumps out and screams
for your attention. While the album did drag for me on
some of the more traditional punk songs I think it has
more to do with not being able to see them play the
songs live than anything. All in all there is nothing
to complain about on this compilation, it touches on a
wide variety of genres and styles like a good
compilation should do, yet there is also a very
distinctive flow that can only come from bands who
play in the same scene together for years.


"nice little compilation"
There are 22 bands on this nice little compilation. Mostly what I here is pure old-school punk, basement rock, and melodic hardcore. Much of the singing is pretty clean and friendly. Many of these bands could probably be steered toward some commercial success on the right Warped Tour stage. A lot of what I hear here could easily find its way into my 14 year old nieces CD changer. Sure, there are some stronger moments here that might get the Mohawks more a’ prickle, but they are kind of shadowed by the more smiley la-la-la’s of the college radio friendliness. I liked the band Agent with their politically charged “Rally ‘Round The Flag.” No means Yes was kinda fun and rowdy. Autonomadic did a very different song called “Pig Tails,” that I am not so sure about. It might be cool. Got to give that one another listen to see what its really all about. Firecrotch serves up an anthem for the indulgent. The Rotten Eggs show their scorn pretty coherently. The last one I’ll mention is Last 1 Out who do some interesting punk-psycho-blather that might be the most original thing here simply for its sloppiness. Don’t get me wrong. Everything here is do-able, just not super-stimulating. If all 22 of these bands came to my town for a great big shebang, I wouldn’t complain one bit.
