Review: Blackout Shoppers – Pass Out [2008]

Amazon Blackout ShoppersLong overdue, prolific NYC punk troupe Blackout Shoppers have unleashed a proper album in the form of PASS OUT. Overflowing with the spirit of the NYC underground prior to the gentrification of the LES, this tenacious 20 track assault embraces hardcore punk’s roots and NYHC mayhem to kick up a sterling showcase of sneering anarchic anthems (“One Way System,” “Used Cars”) and breakneck blasts of volatility (“Gashuffer,” “Double Breakdown”) guaranteed to get the party spinning completely out of control. If you miss the good old days when punk was a battle cry and not a fashion statement, you will love Blackout Shoppers. www.blackoutshoppers.com -Mike SOS
