The Front


The Front Man, You Gotta Move LP

Could be the West Coast’s answer to the PROLETARIAT, what with their older punk sound (not driving post-punk as with the PROL’s) and their non-clichéd political lyrics. The FRONT’s highly catchy powerhouse pop-punk makes them immediately memorable, but I suspect there’s staying power as well.

The Front Gangland cassette

Somewhat reminiscent of the CLASH at their rockin’ best. More like if they had maintained their early zest and knack for pop/punk catchiness and merged it with an ’80s thrash attack. Good and powerful.
