There’s garage punk and then there’s Texan garage punk. Think Mind Spiders, Bad Sports, VIDEO. Remember when there was the danger that the Marked Men might disband? Phew! Radioactivity flourish in this world, perhaps at the forefront. Here’s why: they’re a supergroup, made up of all the aforementioned bands. Their music often veers into pop-punk territory, so if you’re thinking about converting that emo friend into some quality down south rock ‘n’ roll, look no further. It’s fast, it’s danceable, it’s undeniable. Yeehaw!
