I am sure a few of heard of these but for those who haven't, OFF! were formed by ex Circle Jerks front man Keith Morris with the remit to bring Punk back to it's roots. No poppy tunes or extreme Hardcore influences, just straight up good old fashioned Punk Rock. It is nothing that you haven't heard before but then it is not supposed to be.

The First Four E.P'S collection is well worth a listen and although there has been a new release this year (Wasted Years), I would go with the earlier releases first.

One of the best acts to come along in years. The first four eps is definitely their essential listening, however wasted years is becoming a grower of sorts. I love Black Thoughts, Darkness, Panic Attack, and Peace in Hermosa also. They are also one of the best live acts i've seen in recent years if you can get by Keith Morris's politics.

I don't share Whatever dudes feelings on Dmitri Coats, he was nothing but a great guy when we conversed with him. Everyone has a bad day.

Good share—pretty cool stuff! I'll have to listen to their new album. Haven't heard of them before.
