This band has managed to ride a glowing Tim Yo record review from nearly 20 years ago into the realm of near-legend. Surprisingly, that debut 7” is one I still count amongst my faves of the era, worthy of being mentioned alongside REATARDS, LOLI AND THE CHONES and EPILEPTIX when it comes to primitive, shitty-teenager punk rock. And Wisconsin’s LAST SONS OF KRYPTON may be the shittiest teenagers of them all—at least that’s the case this long-overdue LP is making. Every one of the twenty tunes collected here represents a life’s work for some true teenage fuck-ups, and the quality of the racket is generally higher than it has any real right to be. Their sensitivities and “worldview” couldn’t be any lower though, offering up some kind of perverse balance that keeps them punk boneheads until death. Whatever. A gang of insufferable, bratty and delinquent assholes making a racket outta sheer frustration and hatred of their lives and surroundings is always gonna be punker than shit, and LAST SONS OF KRYPTON fit that bill perfectly. True teenage assholery on display…waste no time in acquiring a copy of your own!

Awww…I shed a tear…such sweet sweet sentiments! Thanks guys! We actually have a new split 12″ w/ Rev. Nørb and the ONIONS that should be out by July with some brand new stuff as well as some stuff we wrote back in ’96. Our side is pretty alright, but WHOLLY SHIT IS THE Nørb Onions side GOOOOD! Hahaha shameless promotion!!
