Sore Points harken back to late 70's punk where the lines between punk and hardcore were blurred. Think Middle Class "Out Of Vogue", Subhumans "Death to the Sickoids" and the like. It's fast, poignant, yet intelligent and articulate.
"Sore Points’s furious and relentless strumming is tighter than a fifth-grader’s ginch. Displaying a raw authenticity that harks back to punk’s London inception in the late 1970s, Sore Points’s playing might be aggressive, but the group’s tracks boast a complexity and variation that belies the genre’s three-chord reputation. " - Georgia Straight
The Real Sickies
Old school rock in the vein of Teenage Head and the Ramones. Once you get sick there ain't no gettin better.
New power punk featuring members of Hag Face, the Shematomas and We Knew.
