Wasted Years - VICE
FILTER Grade: 80%

By Kurt Orzeck on April 8, 2014



Punk would be neutered without anarchy, but there’s a comfort that comes with Keith Morris’s reliably taut and—dare we say it—structured crew. The band, which has featured 16 songs and Raymond Pettibon artwork on every album, managed to keep the self-recorded Wasted Years crisp and orderly without editing any of the performances. The clean sound is especially remarkable given that the sucker was documented live to eight-track half-inch tape. This shit is legit.
