When surveying the neo-punk landscape I mostly see amplified mediocrity and angst over melody. However, whenever I encounter a Kung Fu Records sampler, I recall there is a whole label of peppy and upbeat pop punk that provides memorable and worthwhile music. The eighteen tracks of music (Vandals “I Can’t Wait” is an unlisted bonus) are enhanced with six video tracks. As if this were not enough Neil Hamburger is on hand as “host” delivering goofy lines between most of the songs. It is a great way to find about new bands. My personal discovery on this budget sampler: Tsunami Bomb.
