They don't sing about the generation that followed baby boomers, tiki bars in people's backyards or some fucking fictional outlaw asshole named Ringo. Instead, Automatic Self Destruct is a band that sounds like they deserve to make a record and that they know what the fuck they are doing. Hearing the band absolutely rip into the first song on their album, "Get Down," was a long-needed relief from my trying, soul-crushing local music woes.
Best Song: "Tradecraft" showcases, in a rather honest way, just how talented musicians the members of Automatic Self Destruct are. The guys can craft a pretty catchy punk song, complete with super-fast, frenetic lyrics, and "Oi! Oi! Oi!" background vocals. The album has a nice mid- to late-'80s feel to it, and "Tradecraft" serves as the band's crowning achievement.
