Although I’m hardly a punk connoisseur, there are still punk bands that I like (besides the ones Doug implores me to listen to). One of these is my favorite of Oregon’s punk bands (that I’ve heard!), The Thermals. What I find refreshing about them is that, unlike many bands that today’s kids call punk, The Thermals have some crazy hard-rocking energy, especially on their debut, More Parts Per Million. Granted, that is a fairly moot point thanks to the music Doug’s been posting lately, but what’s one more? Besides one more, that is… yeah. And what crazy album art! Fuckin’ A!
