How To Make Enemies & Irritate People (1994)
If this would have been the Screeching Weasel's last album, they could have at least ended their career with a loud, middle-finger salute. (Unfortunately, they would eventually try to recapture their old flame with a different lineup some years after ...

||New Bomb Turks|
Information Highway Revisited (1994)

||Black Velvet Flag|
Come Recline With Black Velvet Flag (1995)
One of the funniest records released this year. Remember the CIRCLE JERKS dressed as lounge entertainers, crooning an insipid Borscht-Belt version of "When the Shit Hits the Fan," in the '83 movie Repo Man? And the punk at the table ...

Red Medicine (1995)

Songs in the Key of Bree (1994)
The debut album by San Diego ska-punks Buck-O-Nine garnered instant comparison to the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, and for good reason; although singer Jon Pebsworth had infinitely more dulcet tones than the gravel-voiced Dicky Barrett, the band's revved-up reiteration of the ...
