Consumer Guide Reviews:

Midwesterncuttalistick [Version City, 2004]
Seventeen songs in 33 minutes by Cleveland Voidoids/Fugazi fans who still read the newspaper ("Beans and Rice," "Art Project," "Paint Me a Picture"). ***

It Takes a Nation of Assholes [Cold Sweat, 2006]
Frantic fury la Bad Brains and the Crass, only faster ("Garbage In/Garbage Out," "Nailed to the Cross"). **

Public Square [Smog Veil, 2009]
Keeping the dream alive--Minor Threat's, not MLK's ("About Last Night," "Makes My Teeth White," "My Notes"). **
