Loud, snotty and apolitical. That's the flavours The Despondents come in. With their influences proudly displayed (Ramones, Action Swingers, Barracudas - you get the picture), they power through 14 short and sharp blasts of dirtily produced rock and roll. You get a bit of misogyny ('You Stupid Girl'), prospective holiday destinations ('California'), obvious drug hymn ('Stoned') and abuse of the NME ('Gotta Getaway (England Sucks)'). Given that last track apolitical is maybe the wrong word to use about the band, or it could be they just hate the weather.
