TOTAL PUNK RECORD REVIEW GENERATOR
In the past 15 years I've put out over 100 releases and have had to write a description for each everyone. There are only so many ways to describe a punk record.

Over the next 7 years I released 42 records under that moniker and despite some missteps along the way I'm pretty proud of its roster.

I decided to start a fun new singles series as a distraction and here I...
