RCRD THRWBCK: The Bronx - Young Bloods
Welcome to the first RCRD THRWBCK, where each weekend a different editor will select a record from our virtual stacks that they deem worthy for reevaluation and/or reintroduction.
The Bronx are kind of the George Foremans of California punk–they've named every one of their children–sorry, albums–after themselves. Some might call that a lack of creativity, I call it a way to avoid overwrought album titles and force a premonition-free listen. I also call that having balls. You will hear them in "Young Bloods" (originally posted in October of 2008), an exhaustively fast, undeniably catchy, head-smacking, three-minute master class in How To Write A Punk Song That People Can Sing Along To Without Feeling Like A Dummy. Also worth your time: their Mariachi alter-ego.
