The Credentials - Goocher LP. When I was 13 years old punk rock had a large part in shaping my world view. Bands like Crimpshrine and Propagandhi made me think about where I stood on issues, both political and personal, and made me want to fight for a world worth living in. I often find myself missing that breed of punk rock because it seems like all too often these day punk feels like a frat party. The Credentials sound like they’d be at home in the early nineties bay area punk scene. They fall somewhere between the east bay sound of the '90s, think Crimpshrine and Pinhead Gunpowder and more modern bands like Chinese Telephones and Witches With Dicks. This is a great LP and it looks amazing too! It’s on 180 gram vinyl and comes with a 20 page zine. The packaging on this thing is amazing!
