SO MY KIDS WON’T HAVE TO
I Farm’s contagious concoction of metallic-tinged punk with an emphasis on speed has placed this Brooklyn by way of Ithaca, NY act on the lips of the snotty punk rock contingent, and with good reason. This re-release takes the frenetic pace of West Coast punk and aligns it with a heaping helping of attitude that only the most grizzled East Coasters can muster. The end result is a smashing 18-track punk rock explosion that melds NOFX, Misfits, F-Minus, and Propagandhi into blistering nuggets of socially aware punk rock like “All Punks Go To Hell” and “No Thanks To You”. While these guys are far from doing anything unique, the passion displayed is genuine and the band’s intentional sloppiness gives SO MY KIDS WON’T HAVE TO that punk rock edge that so many bands miss the boat with today. Worth a listen if you dig the more chaotic Warped Tour acts.
