Han and the Solos: Teenagers from the Black Lagoon cassette

Feral Kid Records

$5.00

Aborted 7" from this upstate NY band that broke up before their time. They were from the unlikely locale of Olean, NY, and they actually remind me quite a bit of a few upstate NY bands of years past... most notably Skate Korpse and Insubordinates. Like both of those bands, the foundation of Han and the Solos' music is catchy skate rock a la Agent Orange or the Faction, but the style doesn't seem forced or contrived... it's just a totally natural expression for these raging, energetic, catchy punk songs. Throw in a totally awesome raw, DIY recording and you have what would have been a really excellent 7"... oh well, at least we have the tape. Feral Kid Records
