Smut Peddlers
Coming Out (TKO Records)

By: Mike SOS

Smut Peddlers were around way before any of these squeaky clean punks were blading and boarding in Southern California, and the band's old school attitude and in your face sound feels so refreshing. Containing 14-tracks of West Coast punk, this is the outfit's fifth full length release, a crowning achievement in the punk rock community, and yet, this quintet play with the kind of energy of a rookie crew. Singing songs about pertinent issues about the quality of life, politics, drugs, and the general backwards nature of the country we live in, Smut Peddlers does its best to right the wrongs with the punk rock backbeat that drives the crowd wild and the experience to whip the crowd into a frenzy. If you missed out on the early years of DIY punk or if you want to reminisce about the glory days, Coming Out is the best album to do either by, as this old school band showcase that they've got a lot of gas left in the tank while many of its peers are fading away from the scene.
