Black President! This rekkid is fucking incredible. I swear, please pick this up, you will love it! Fast,catchy, pissed off punk rock. There is a good mix of songs on here, a few are slower (Neon, Watch You Drink),as well as fast ass punk tunes with the forbidden beat (Last Fucking Hope, Short List of Outspoken Suspects). But all the songs rule. You know the guys on the rekkid: Christian Martucci from Dee Dee Ramone band and the Strychnine Babies, Charlie Paulson from Goldfinger, Jason Christopher from New Dead Radio, and Roy Mayorga from Nausea and other bands. Dave Raun from Lagwagon now plays drums with them. And of course the spectacular Greg Hetson from Bad Religion & the Circle Jerks used to shred in the band. Anyway, the rekkid is comprised of a lot of great lyrics by Paulson, who writes all songs except "Not Enough", "Watch You Drink", & "Hallelujah" (Paulson & Hetson) and "Neon" (Paulson & Martucci). And of course the last track "Elected" is an Alice Cooper cover, which rules.
The lyrics are so radical, and range from shots at religion to young, rich, junkies and the media. My favorite song is "Not Amused" which you may have heard on the last Goldfinger rekkid "Hello Destiny". The GF version featured guest vocals by Ray Cappo of Youth of Today & Better Than a Thousand. However, the Black President version has Christian singing lead vocals, not Charlie. Still fucking rules! Oh, and Beat Union sings some background vocals on "Watch You Drink" which rules! Rekkid clocks in at 31:45 and comes with a lyric book.
You must go see this band live, fucking destroyed Red 7 in Austin when they opened for T.S.O.L. earlier this year!
There is not much more to say about this rekkid except that is really good and fast and will make you destroy everything and lose your mind! So good!
Fast, catchy, and socio-political punk rawk makes this rekkid stand out, please buy it!
