Piss Test (PDX)
With multiple records now on Taken By Surprise, Jonnycat, and Dirt Cult, Piss Test have rounded out their sound out with definitive nods to early California punk rock like the Adolescents and Legal Weapon crossed with the sharper edge of Boston's Proletariat. Lyrics spit forth jokes and criticisms of all the sacred cows of punk. They have one of the best names in the biz but they want action, danger and birth control. Ex-members of Therapists and Red Dons

Corner Boys (Vancouver)
Good Vibrations in YVR circa 2017. Debut single coming out on the UK's Drunken Sailor Records. Like if Protex covered a Simpletones song. Vancouver's best kept secret? Members of Puritans, Ex-Nervous Talk.

Night People (Vancouver)
Synth/punk/postpunk in a murky mess that somehow comes across sounding like Wipers playing hopscotch with the devil. But in a good way. Demotape sold out. 7" version coming out on Deranged soon.

Nutrition (Kamloops)
Well fed punk idiots. Members of every other Kamloops band of the last 10 years and that guy that runs the coffee shop that hosted all your Interior BC shows is the singer. Like the Dead Milkmen but actually milkmen. Lattes and all. Demented hardcore that at first reminds me of Crucifucks then settles somewhere within the Lumpy Records or Total Punk catalog. Surfy guitar and screamed vocals.
Excellent stuff but they're never going to get rich doin' it y'know?

$5 - $10 PWYC.
Two out of town bands and it's 2017. Gas is expensive and the world is going to explode in a nuclear cock measuring contest by silly geese. What else are you going to spend your money on? At least ramen is still cheap.
