New Release: Transplants “In a Warzone”
Last time out, this punk act – featuring Rancid’s Tim Armstrong, Blink-182‘s Travis Barker and an ex-roadie vocalist they call Skinhead Rob – fumbled through rap and techno. Here they’re mercifully back in high-def Clash mode. Rob shouts with a rhythmic verve that outclasses Warped Tour-core peers. He doesn’t have all that much to say about the government, but this is music best measured in bruises sustained than brain cells expanded.
