Channel 3- Put ´Em Up LP. Channel 3 (CH3 for short) has been around a long time...35 years to be exact. The band started in Southern California in 1980 and put out a couple of great records on Posh Boy before leaving that label to record for a number of other labels over the years. And unlike a lot of other bands from that era who followed a somewhat similar musical path, CH3 never stopped playing and in recent years have found their niche by playing their classic punk rock mixed with more brut poppy melodies. This LP is proof that CH3 still has a lot to offer and just gets better with age. The new LP sounds like the missing link between ‘Last Time I Drank’ and their ‘S/T’ album. Think Adolescents meets the Clash topped with a splash of The Boys -like poppy vocal harmonies. Good to see these guys still going strong. 10 song banger here from a band that deserves to be considered punk rock royalty at this point. Recommended! Import from Germany on Wanda Records.
