Blue Collar Special is one of those "good time bands" that sticks in the back of your head like a grinning lawn dart. Named after a cheap pizza from Joe Peep's in North Hollywood, their music comes right from the soul. The good part, though, opposite the wrist-slashing-to-Morrissey-bit. Wailing guitars, life-drenched vocals, and that stomping punk rock, where the shores are big and the music's hella-loud! Budweiser and Coronas--lots and lots of beer, poured back into their instruments before (and after) every gig. They're the best band from the LA/San Fernando Valley since Bad Religion. Don't take my word for it-see them for yourself.

Blue Collar Special is an amazingly tight band, but this album is a release of all very early songs that are not quite that good. If you've never heard them i recommend getting the split with JFA and The Worthless, it is called Concrete Waves it is on Disaster Records and is a must have for skate punk rats, and will very easily turn into the soundtrack for your skating sessions.
