Various Artists: Out of the Woodwork
By: Jeb Branin
This is the second release from the burgeoning Grub Records. This is a pure DIY, scene promoting venture. 24 tunes from 24 bands from all over the world. The label describes them as 'local' bands but they are not very localized.... Only in punk vernacular can the term 'local bands' mean bands from all the planet! Ska, punk, and hardcore acts are represented. There are several sub par performances (especially from the ska bands - ska has to be done just right or it sucks) but there are several top notch tunes as well. Not surprisingly my favorites are the hardcore bands like LANTHANUM, RACIAL ABUSE, HEREAFTER, and TIED DOWN. The disc groups the genres together so you can easily ignore that which has little or no appeal to you. I can't imagine you won't find several bands to spark your interest here.
